In our conversation we talked about a variety of topics: Teaching music to changing voices, affirming students of all races and cultures in choral music, community children's choirs and how they can supplement music in schools, incorporating ideas like the "Reality Pedagogy" in choral singing, and everything in between! One of the highlights was when we talked about programming that affirmed all students. Dr. Dilworth said he never programs a concert without having one piece by a woman and one piece by an African American composer. This is a tradition I hope to bring into my own teaching..
The conversation was inspiring and I can't wait to hear more from him as the conference moves on.
