As a respected studio recording artist, he has performed on many recording sessions including movie soundtracks as well as many other genres.  An avid jazz fan, he is an accomplished jazz improvisor and frequently appears with local artists as well as the University of Indianapolis Jazz Faculty in rehearsals and concerts.  Schlabach has been the teacher of record at UIndy since 2005 in both classical and jazz performance. 

Schlabach’s private teaching studio has been an active part of the Indianapolis music scene since the mid 1980’s, working with many talented students of all ages from North Central High School, Lawrence North and Lawrence Central High Schools, Park Tudor, Eastwood Middle School and many others.
