I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT BRIDGING THE TRADITIONAL GAP BETWEEN ANALYSIS AND PERFORMANCE.
Nick Schumacher maintains an active career as a performer and educator throughout mid-Michigan. He currently teaches applied clarinet at Albion College and Lansing Community College, and undergraduate aural skills at Michigan State University. As a dual performer and music theorist, Nick is passionate about helping students forge powerful connections between their study of analysis and their work as performers. His pedagogy centers around musical expectation and realization, empowering students to have meaningful, theoretically informed, and accessible conversations in private lessons, with audiences during concerts, and in their own teaching.
