October 28: We’ve added three more Small Ensemble Pieces for you to practice and perform with your small groups. These include parts for violin, viola, and cello, and also contain the MP3 of the pieces. You can find them, along with our Small Ensemble Exercises, here on our Small Ensembles page.

August 16: You can now find a revised module on “Easy Tonal Improv” aka “Improvising with Pachelbel”. It is now “classroom ready”, and improved for individual members too. Look for more expansion of this module soon. All feedback is welcome!

August 15: CSA 2.0 is in process! I am organizing a clearer “course path” for classroom users as well for anyone suffering from information overload! For classroom users and teachers, I am creating suggested lesson plans/assignments for many modules. The “Gear/Technology” section (bottom of right sidebar) has been revised to include a working course plan, complete with a quiz for students. Look for more coming soon. Call or email with any questions or suggestions for addition of new content or revision of existing content. My sleeves are rolled up and I’m digging in!
