Teaching is at the heart of our profession. We all have to learn how to decipher the road maps left to us by composers in the form of scores. We have to learn from practitioners how to make good noise. We learn a whole host of traditions, tips, and tricks from those who have gone before. And if you’re lucky enough to stick around for a while, you get younger mentors, who teach you new perspectives on all that history through their fresher eyes. To be involved in teaching is to be constantly renewed! When I’m not doing that, I’m trying to feast my eyes on other inspiring sights.
