Chase is the Director of MusicWorks. He is also a freelance teacher and runs a clarinet studio.
Chase: “How are things during the pandemic? There is the music educator side and the music performer side. I find myself questioning if the music performer side will even hold up. I don’t make my living with performing, but I feel for my colleagues who do. Education-wise, I think all the right discussions are being had—people are trying to figure out how to do better, how to bring diversity to classical music. These are conversations we should have had a long time ago.”
