Orchestras, choruses, and music festivals are my passion. As far as the music world goes, working within these organizations is as good as it gets. That doesn’t mean it’s easy, though. Frustrations and challenges exist among the numerous opportunities and rewards, but few consultants actually specialize in the needs of this specific field.

As a successful leader with more than 20 years of experience in the nonprofit arts sector, I’ve spent hours providing guidance to colleagues on the phone, over meals, and in Board meetings around the country. The challenges we’ve tackled together have covered topics as varied as capital campaigns, composer residencies and Board-Staff relations.

I provide guidance to music organizations of all shapes and sizes, on a one-time or ongoing basis. Please contact me to discuss your needs, including guidance in the areas of:

  • Capacity Building
  • Board Development
  • Meeting Facilitation
  • Strategic Planning
  • Fundraising & Marketing Strategy
  • Budget Preparation
  • Interim staff leadership
