"I enjoy my time with students and value their input. I encourage them to work together to help each other learn. I hope that students will learn the value of quantitative analysis from my acoustics classes. They will gain a greater appreciation of the physical conditions that govern sound, and how to manipulate those conditions in order to enhance their performances and recordings."
"Berklee's acoustics classes are unique because all of the students begin with a deep appreciation for music and are active listeners. They understand that auditory experience is an important part of everyday life. I have many years of experience building musical instruments, including pianos, guitars, and violins. This background gives me a practical understanding of the relationship between physical objects and sound."
