 From our participants:

“I still reflect on the time spent in David Hodgkins’ conducting classes and choirs as some of the most valuable in my education as a choral director. I’ve never been held to the standard you hold me to, and I know many of your students and musicians share that view. It’s remarkable what can be achieved when higher standards are expected.”

“A most rewarding musical experience. Every minute was well-planned, engaging, totally relevant, challenging and sparked my interest in wanting to learn more. The Music Education faculty, an outstanding group of scholars and teachers are knowledgeable and present the materials in a professional, supportive manner.”
