I began my musicology career with a focus on music in Britain during the seventeenth century, specifically keyboard music practices. In the 2000s I have expanded my research agenda to include women and music in the nineteenth-century United States, with a focus on music in the South. This website is a forum for me to talk about my work and links to another site where I share data on the numerous binder’s volumes I have encountered through my research. I have discovered so much information that I will never be able to write about it all, so I hope that others may find it useful to delve into the names, places, and other information included there.
When not working on these projects, I teach at North Carolina Central University, an HBCU in Durham, NC. I also perform locally as a soprano, pianist, organist, and harpsichordist. My hobbies include gardening, cooking, painting, and traveling. Growing up, I dabbled in many of the same accomplishments as the women whose lives I study–times may change, but they change slowly.
