What is WhiteNova?

    To be curious is to wonder about the unknown. What is it? How does it work? Why is it that way? Can I do it, too?

    Curiosity leads to exploration, which leads to many new things. A life lived with curiosity is a rich life filled with meaning.

    As a business and creative outlet, WhiteNova has been my avenue of curiosity and discovery for a number of years. My varied skills and interests have fueled this path, and WhiteNova keeps adapting to my work. My current direction and focus is to transform the learning of music through hybrid online courses. My background includes a PhD in music theory and experience as a college professor. Now I want to find a better way of helping people enjoy music more.

    The name “WhiteNova” began with a simple curiosity about the beauty of an exploding star or nova. Look at this recent image from the Webb Telescope. It’s the Tarantula Nebula, a star-forming region.

    How far away are these stars? How do stars form? Why does this image have those colors? How can we find out the what, how, when, and why of what’s happening?

    As I explore what it means to help people enjoy music more, I invite you to be curious and join me on the journey. Send me an email at intriguing [at] whitenova [dot] com.
