I have attended every New Sounds event for the past 17 years except for the year I had my last baby! This is a highlight of my summer and something I always look forward to. I truly feel that JW Pepper does an amazing job of choosing high-quality clinicians and a broad variety of repertoire. I always leave refreshed and excited for the new school year. In addition to the quality, getting to visit with colleagues from across the state is some of the best professional development you can get!
