Episode 193: Engaging Students in the Rehearsal Process with Dr. Charlie Menghini

In this episode, I have the privilege of interviewing Dr. Menghini of VanderCook College of Music. We talk about engaging students in the rehearsal process.

Do we teach our students, train them, or tell them? There’s an important distinction. Do they know what to do? Do you ask them a lot of questions? Hint: You should. That’s what teaching is really all about. Let THEM do the work, the thinking, the problem solving.
