A lively talk I gave

At the DePauw School of Music in September. I had exactly 21 minutes, and tried to make the most of each one. Here’s a video link. I talked about the future of classical music — and how we must learn how to join the contemporary world. Lively!

What conservatories should do

And I gave a talk at Indiana University. No video available yet. But in the talk I highlighted thoughts about what conservatories should do, to prepare their students for the future. All conservatories should foster conversation day and night about the future. And students should learn to build their own audience — even while they’re in school.
