The traditional methods of learning for musicians (studying with a major and influential teacher, studying large and small ensembles, supporting contextual studies) have served musicians well throughout generations. 


Today’s performing art scene is reaching more divergent audiences and requires thoughtful, adaptable performers who are open to new ideas. 


I will discuss different ways that classical musicians can engage with sister art forms to enrich and enliven their learning experience and how this can develop multiple talents in our students.
