If you ever needed to be reminded of just how much a music teacher can change lives, look no further than BriAnne Woodward. Her well-prepared students go on to great success in both PFC & Madison Avenue. Better yet, they are sent off better prepared for a world that often doesn’t make much sense.
This interview is truly inspirational – for students, for teachers, for the future of vocal music, and, well, for everyone. Do your soul a favor and tune in.
Rachael and Amanda chat with Rachel Chalhoub – an all-star you may know as Rachel C. From an accidental start at FSU to being behind the scenes at many of your favorite festivals and events, and even a stint on national TV, she’s got a unique perspective of the community from behind the lens.
Eventually you’ll be able to find her again at rachelismyfriend.com but follow her on social media (@roguepotato) to see what she’s up to and just be friends!
