Fulbright Global Scholar Award, Royal Northern College of Music - Music

Ohio, where I teach studio piano, chamber music, and improvisation. At the Royal College of Music, I will continue my work on historic improvisation: the system of musicianship training that allows one to create complete works in styles such as Baroque fugues and Classical sonatas.

I will teach methods of improvisation to individual students, lecture to classes, and present improvised concerts at RNCM and elsewhere in the UK. I also hope to complete my new book on fugue improvisation while in Manchester.
