Moving to Japan!



I’m thrilled to announce that I have passed the final screening of the 2017 Monbukagakusho Research Student Scholarship. The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) in Tokyo has confirmed my studies, fully funded, at Kunitachi College of Music with Masato Kumoi for two years (April 2017 to March 2019).  As the recipient of this scholarship, I will be the first American to formally study the saxophone in Japan.  I’m looking forward to getting the opportunity to be immersed in Japanese saxophone performance and pedagogy.


So, I’ve decided to start this blog to document my studies and travel while I live in Tokyo!
