“Brad is an extraordinary creative leader and teacher. He understands how to use music and composition to support young people’s growth and development. His students learn how to use their craft to create melodies and rhythms and even orchestral pieces that reflect their deepest passions, concerns and desires for change in their communities. I love watching him ‘at work’ whether with young people or my graduate students.”
