Music & Spirit is a concept of a thoughtful observation and recognition of our lives and its musical application. It touches the invisible entities that we deal with everyday: love, friendship, struggles, hatred, failures, yearning, and many other aspects of our lives. Through music I want to recognize many valuable things that we don't give our thoughts and love a great deal. My research focus has been on "music as a spiritual tool," in which the concept of spirituality and the spiritual function of music intersect with various genres of music. I have also been researching how this conceptual approach can be applied to composition and performance and developing methodologies that I can share with my students and colleagues in educational settings.
