“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
- Maya Angelou
This perspective guides the way I view the role of choral music. In every interaction, rehearsal, and performance I strive to create a comfortable, safe, engaging, and exciting environment for learning. If we begin to focus on the process of music making and the people we are making music with, the final product will come naturally. The life lessons, strategies, skills, and emotional experiences we are able to have through music are unmatched. It is my true belief that through choral music we can impact lives, develop positive coping skills, promote social change, encourage emotional expression, and create an affirming and safe space for all members of our communities.
