Another example of the extraordinary individuals on the faculty at the Hugh Hodgson School of Music: UGA Community Music School Director Kristin Jutras and assistant professor of piano pedagogy Peter Jutras are featured in a spotlight article by their alma mater, the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester. The interview with the musical couple focuses on their artistic leadership and the necessity of musicians taking the initiative to bring their music to the world.

Kristin: Leadership skills are essential for a musician. Most of us leave college and expect to go into the world to perform, teach, or conduct research. As the competition becomes tougher, and jobs become scarcer, musicians need to have leadership skills and vision to create their own jobs and to promote themselves. Even beginning a successful private teaching studio utilizes leadership skills.

Read the whole thing. Congratulations Kristin and Peter on the well-deserved attention.

A reminder: The holiday edition of the 2nd Thursday Concert Series continues tonight at 8 p.m. at the UGA Performing Arts Center.
