When I first came to the Faculty of Music I was pleasantly surprised that, unlike the majority of music programs in universities and conservatories in North America and other parts of the world, the piano faculty would teach a master class in rotation allowing students to receive feedback from multiple approaches. I find that initiative open-minded and healthy for all of us. I am very proud that this was possible at U of T when I know that, in fact, it is very rare elsewhere! Colleagues are very collegial at the Faculty of Music and that is a very important matter I am very happy about.
