Thank you for visiting my application page.

You will find all requested documents as well as additional supporting materials and videos

 
 

Below is a sampling of videos of my work.
My YouTube channel currently has over 1,500,000 views and over 3,000 subscribers.

If selected as Artistic Director, I would work diligently to expand PBC’s social media presence.

Speaking at the Arizona Music Educators State Conference.
I will be presenting again at the 2019 AMEA Conference.

Representing PBC, Speaking and Singing African-American Spirituals at the Black Board of Directors Project Annual Award Ceremony

Representing PBC, Speaking and Singing American Patriotic and Folk Songs at the Phoenix Arcadia Rotary

A Community Sing event where I had 300 Singers from Elementary through High School combine with the Audience in Song.

As PBC’s Artistic Director, I would love to explore opportunities for all levels of the choir to perform together and to engage the audience directly in our music making.

 

I am the Founder and CEO of ChoirUnlimited, a Digital Sheet Music Publishing Company. We publish many composers and have our music performed across the world.

As PBC’s Artistic Director I would be active in seeking relationships with living composers to commission original works and world premieres that are worthy of PBC’s high musical standards.

 
 

Thank you again for considering my application.

I welcome any questions or comments, and I look forward to many years of serving the Phoenix Boys Choir in any role that allows me to use my talents to serve our valuable mission.
