I’ve enjoyed my experience running for MTNA president. I view it as a chance to have a dialogue with the music teachers of the United States about the key issues in teaching today, and how MTNA can help all of us address the challenges we face in creating a more musical tomorrow. So I am very appreciative of Leila Viss, who sent a set of questions to both candidates for the MTNA presidency and offered to post the answers on her outstanding blog, 88 Piano Keys. I found her queries thought provoking, to say the least, and I value the opportunity to share my ideas. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, I recommend it!
