“My idea is to teach as an orchestra leader. Teach...Rehearse...Produce. I teach, we practice, then I stand back and THEY produce, as I go around to correct and offer feedback and guidance, as a group and individually. This is done within a hands on environment with a then and there approach; which is very important for performing arts and chorus line work. Through practice, they will learn."
