I am a musician, educator, saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist. I strive to share music that is original, unifying among musicians, and uplifting for the audience. My ensembles consist of original, strait-ahead, modern jazz with the "Meisel Music" duos, trios, quartets and the larger band called the Meisel Music Collecitve. "Montauk Project" is my creative music duo with drummer Jake Polancich, and "Two Owl Song", a spiritual ensemble co-lead with my wife Celia, featuring music for the earth and humanity. I teach k-8 music at Erin school, direct the Moraine band at the University of Wisconsin Washington County and bring the community together hosting open mic sessions in Hartford and Milwaukee.
