“My work with the Honors Conservatory students is more and more about blending craft and technique with something more elusive, but as essential: the ability to find freedom -- joy -- affirmation in their work, and the courage to avail themselves of who they are at each moment of the process. It mirrors what I strive for in my own work.”
