Irina Walters and Lauren Haley

Hello, all!

I’m finally back from a wonderful trip abroad that ended with a lecture and performance at ACS Egham International School in Surrey, England.

I thoroughly enjoyed talking to HS International Baccalaureate students about what it takes to earn a conservatory degree in performance and what the pursuit of music teaches us about learning. It’s inspiring to see how Irina Walters’ music program at ACS has grown with spectacular guest artist and student performances.

While in London I also had the chance to meet up with Levine Andrade, my violin and viola teacher in England for the years I spent there. I was so excited to see my former teacher that I forgot to take a picture! But, needless to say, I am so grateful to both Levine and Irina for the profound impact their musical mentorship has had on my life.
