Lindsay Brazell

Music Educator and Creative Professional

You Influence All Professions

No pressure, but you’re kind of responsible for the future. Every note you teach is somehow contributing to the medical, law, food and beverage, chemistry, and construction professions.

And the engineers, web developers, chefs, actors, journalists, and electricians.

Oh, and the politicians, athletes, carpenters, and teachers.

Need I continue?

Being in a music ensemble is like a first job in many ways, minus the paycheck. They are learning to be a part of a team, and that each voice matters. If they don’t pull their own weight, the whole ensemble suffers.

Students learn to be on time for performances, and they learn the process of preparation that got them to those performances.

They learn to be independent musicians, reading music and knowing their part. They aim to not lean on other students for their part. They help those who may be struggling.

They develop friendships, both close and collegial, and acknowledge they are a team.

If there is ever a day that you doubt you are making a difference, you are so very incorrect! In fact, every day that passes is a win for some profession. We just won’t see the results for a few years.
