“I am a firm believer that we must learn and teach music from different cultures. And by different cultures, I don’t mean only the music from specific geographical areas but also the music from different cultural groups within the United States, such as music created by the working class, the LGBTQ+ community, urban and rural areas, native people, women of color, the Appalachian region, and my own community, Latinx.”
