Emily’s multiple areas of expertise make her a valuable and in-demand commodity for university lectures, workshops, and residencies. A short-term residency might include:
- one or two full-length recitals
- violin and chamber music masterclasses
- presentation to music student body about careers for musicians in the twenty-first century (the area about which Emily wrote her 500-page doctoral thesis and will be publishing two books)
- lecture to music education majors and performance majors on: effective practice, early childhood development, college teaching, teaching artistry
- lecture on Aesthetics and the Experience of Learning
- work with student composers, bringing the experience of collaborating with some of the twentieth-century’s most important composers. Depending on the residency’s length, Emily might host a reading or performance of some works for solo violin, violin and piano, or violin and electronics
Among others, Emily has held university residencies at Dartmouth College, University of Leeds (UK), University of Virginia, and Columbia University. These residencies allow students an opportunity to interact with an active performing artist to whom they can relate, learn about how to prepare for and create a successful career in music, and learn to interact more successfully amongst their peers.
In addition to speaking at universities, Emily has given presentations for orchestras to better incorporate educational elements and teaching artists into their programs and outreach, for youth orchestras, and spoken on panel discussions for Chamber Music America and the Performing Arts Exchange.
