In Their Own Words

"I want my students to develop a curiosity for the library of music that came before them and the stories that developed those compositions, songs, arrangements, and performances, so that what they learn can inform them during their exploration and experimentation."

"My experience with directing large concerts has shown me that everyone you work with will bring something different to the table, but they are there with a common goal. As a teacher, each student has a different ambition and different reason for being in the ensemble class with you. It is your job to teach them how to bring their different skills together for the common goal of putting on the best performance they can at the end of the semester."
