Tibetan Sand Mandala Workshop
We are in the process of planning a unique workshop based on The Tibetan Buddhist traditional design, creation and destruction of a sand mandalas. This will be a four week class in Sept-October (dates have not been set yet) Students will learn about the tradition and techniques of laying designs of colored sand, symbolism and meditation. This deeply moving and calming process was so amazing we are going to offer it again this year! Students will be asked to participate in a destruction ceremony where all the compassionate efforts and wishes that we put into the artwork is offered out to universe. Stay tuned as we plan to announce this workshop soon!

Among his compositions are a collection of songs for voice and piano, works for piano solo, chamber works, works for chamber orchestra and symphony orchestra. His String Quartet was premiered by members of the London Bach Orchestra and his commissioned works Sound Logic and Requiescat were given their respective premiers by Premiere Ensemble, also of London.

His philosophy as an instructor is: "to give my students the tools they need to become well rounded, skillful and confident musicians".
“Good teaching, then is much more than a process through which one person instructs another. The relationship between teacher and student is complementary. An effective teacher is a partner in learning. Teaching is a shared adventure.”
