In this introductory episode, I lay out the primary objectives of the research and explore the larger questions that we ask of our educators and our arts programs. I also apologize to non-Performing-Arts teachers for playing devil’s advocate at times during the interviews–you’re wonderful educators and I value everything that you do.

The show is available at or on Apple podcasts and Google Play. Listen at your computer or on the go. The results of the research are published via two papers in Canadian Winds, a peer-reviewed journal for instrumental music educators.
