Welcome! We are excited you are here and grateful for your support. It’s because of viewers and listeners like you, Off the Hook Arts can feature and support so many talented artists, so thank you very much!
Starting this spring, Off the Hook Arts will be doing something slightly different in The Arts’ Alcove. We will be featuring students from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
In this latest podcast episode, Off the Hooks Arts Director, Jephta Bernstein, is talking with the president of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
Music is the most efficient vehicle to cause you to become your own best teacher because it requires you to listen and respond”
Jephta’s conversation with David dives into expression and why the artistic expression, or the “telling” of the story, is more critical than being a profusely productive musician. Exploring the balance between intellectual learning and creative exploration is key. David talks a little bit about some of the fascinating curriculum and how cultural landscapes are discussed in terms of historical impact, and how those cultural cues help to create a way for each musician to continue developing their own perspective over time.
When you listen to the podcast, it’s really compelling to hear some of the “behind-the-scenes” knowledge of the students’ day-to-day experiences at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
