Listeners have access to a whole dimension of sound that is not often provided in our modern world. The ancient […]

I often perform on these two instruments simultaneously, especially in acoustic settings and yoga classes. Featured here with Tyler Sussman (flute) and Tripp Dudley (tabla).

As a guest performer with the MSU Choir I was also invited to teach a masterclass for a number of music students. It was amazing working with wind instrumentalists, some of whom were able to pick up circular breathing during this class.
