“There are so many things I love about working at the Conservatory, but I would say getting to work with young students every day has to be up there at the top. It is such a joy to witness a student’s aha moment, or see them grow in confidence, or celebrate their successes with them. My job as a mentor at the Conservatory is much more than just teaching my students how to be a good musician; I get to help them grow in confidence, learn the importance of hard work, and discover the wonderful world of musical expression and how it can feed the soul. At the Conservatory we have the opportunity to impact these young lives in such a positive way and I count it as a privilege and joy to be a part of that.” -Dr. Adam Haas
