What was the biggest “boost” to your musical education?
There were many boosts. First: my piano teacher in high school who inspired me. Second: earning a full scholarship for college and loving my music professors. Third: discovering Orff Schulwerk – it really changed my teaching and I can’t imagine teaching any other way!
