Across the Grain is a percussion/bassoon duo comprised of myself and Dr. Susan Nelson (Bowling Green State University). It is our goal to explore new and existing repertoire that challenges both performer and listener. We recognize the potential of this instrumental pairing and are fully dedicated to furthering the repertoire currently available. Our most recent commission is titled "Breath" by Bret Bohman

Susan and I are dedicated both pedagogues and hope to use this duo as a means to teach important chamber music skills. We offer clinics and masterclasses in addition to giving performances, and welcome the opportunity to work with and provide insight for student chamber ensembles.
