The Rise of the Choral Middle Class

I had the wonderful privilege of sharing a 50 minute conversation with Ryan Guth on his Find Your Forte Podcast. His weekly podcast is a wonderful resource for all choral directors who are passionate about their craft.

Our conversation was focused on my perspective behind building a successful choral program. It involves the pathway for every student to be successful.

I hope you will take a listen!
