A former symphony musician and jazz guitarist, I teach horn, classical improvisation, and a new course "Creativity in Music" [about improvisation and composition] at the University of Iowa School of Music. Works: 100+ published articles about music, 80 some blog entries (horninsights.com), around three dozen published compositions (many recorded on CD), have won two composition contests; two books (Improvisation Games for Classical Musicians [GIA]; Improv Games for One Player [GIA]). I give concerts and workshops nationally and internationally in nonjazz improvisation. I am interested in connecting with other contemporary nonjazz improvisers.
