About Music:

El is a clarinetist, improviser, and performance consultant based in Baltimore, MD. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in music from Bucknell University, where she was awarded the Barbara Watson Grever Prize and the Bucknell Prize in Music. While at Bucknell, El studied clarinet with Elisabeth Stimpert (Alarm Will Sound) and Colleen Hartung, piano with Barry Hannigan, and composition with William Duckworth.

El continued to perform at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, where she studied clarinet with Henry Miyamura and did research in musicology as an advisee of Dr. Kate McQuiston. Her thesis research focused on free improvisation and improvisation pedagogy. Her favorite concert at UHM was the Contemporary Music Ensemble’s performance of Steven Scott’s Vikings of the Sunrise for bowed piano, performed with eight other UHM musicians and director Thomas Osborne.

El is a passionate advocate for free improvisation in undergraduate music programs. While at Bucknell University, she studied with percussionist and improviser Phil Haynes and performed with the Bucknell Interdisciplinary Improvisation Ensemble (BIIE). In 2013 she founded and directed the Hawaii Improvisation Intensive Ensemble (HIIE), which focused on teaching classical musicians to improvise and improve their performance skills.

In addition, I have done graduate study in musicology and taken courses in chamber music literature, music research and methods, and 19th century music & philosophy.
