Sitting Around And Talking
A highlight of my day is getting to sit around and talk with students.
I love their enthusiasm.
I love their spontaneity.
I love their random outbursts of song.
The future of music is in good hands as long as they are able to hold on to each of these things: enthusiasm, spontaneity, and random outbursts of song.
I look forward to watching them grow during their careers.
I recall being just like them.
I recall having very patient and encouraging band and choral directors.
I have been and continue to be very fortunate with being able to surround myself with musical influences: students, classmates, professors, and directors.
May my students see the importance of lifelong learning from and with others in music.
