Recently, he was awarded the 2005 Illinois State University Teaching Initiative Award, given to faculty members who have shown considerable promise in teaching early in their careers. Among his unique teaching initiatives is his extensive use of web-based instruction in choral methods courses and with the University Choir where he uses e-rehearsal resources to compliment the traditional face-to-face rehearsals.
