"I'm excited to be a part of a program where everything is done at an exceptionally high level and provides an environment that nurtures each student to reach his or her maximum potential. Many schools do one or two things very well, but Schulich differs in that it excels in so many areas, be it chamber music, solo playing or orchestral training. I look forward to working with such talented students and I am thrilled to have my name attached to McGill's Schulich School of Music"
