Additionally, she’s worked with educators and artists as a collaborative pianist; her most recent works are the Fire Organ and Cymatics Sculpture, produced by Guerilla Science, and Andantino, a chamber music concert series designed for families. Experienced in working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, adults with intellectual disabilities and neurological impairments, and children with medical conditions in medical settings, Engler desires to use music to serve children and families.
