Teaching

I am currently Professor of Composition and Director of the Centre for Research in New Music (CeReNeM) at the University of Huddersfield, where I have worked since October 2007. I taught previously as Lecturer in Composition at Northwestern University from 2005–07, and as Lecturer in Music at Buffalo State College from 2003–04.

I have given composition masterclasses and individual lessons at institutions worldwide, including at Harvard, Northwestern University, SUNY Buffalo, Oberlin, Penn State University, Oxford, Yong Siew Toh Conservatory Singapore, SEGi College Malaysia, Society of Malaysian Contemporary Composers, as well as through extended Erasmus exchange residencies at Kunstuniversität Graz and the Norwegian Academy of Music.

I have taught as well at various festivals and composer courses, including Mixtur Festival Barcelona, the Florida Contemporary Music Festival, and the Beverley & East Riding Early Music Festival (National Centre for Early Music, York), and have led several student composer workshops and professional development programmes as a conductor, including with Ensemble Musikfabrik (Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln), ELISION (University at Buffalo), Ensemble Proton Bern (Protonwerk No. 11), and International Contemporary Ensemble (Northwestern University). Forthcoming festival teaching includes the Tempus Konnex International Composer Exchange (July 2022) and the Line Upon Line Austin Winter Composer Festival (January 2023).

I am also available for private lessons, either internationally via Zoom or in person in Berlin. Please contact me through the Contact form below for information about rates and scheduling.
