Quote: “The Artist Leadership Program at the Institute for Music Leadership provided me with many wonderful opportunities to learn more about life outside of the role of a performing musician. I was able to learn more about the qualities needed to be an effective leader in today’s complex and challenging world of the arts, as well as creating friendships that have lasted far longer than they would have without this experience. Any student who wants to reach the highest levels of excellence in the music industry should apply and participate in this program. I wouldn’t be where I am today without this experience.”
