I am blessed with wonderful colleagues at Webster University.
Just this morning, as I was waiting for a tardy student, I noticed one of our staff accompanists and part-time teachers reading up on French. I asked; he answered “I’m learning French.”
And then I heard another of our staff accompanists, one who usually plays jazz, practicing the Rachmaninoff G minor prelude on piano.
Thirst for knowledge? We have it. Self-betterment? We have it. Amazing people in this department? We have it.
