Episode 34: You CAN be a music educator and a composer; interview with Travis J. Weller.

Join me as I interview Travis J Weller. Travis is a middle/high school band director AND a composer. In this interview we talk about a lot of things, including Travis' biggest mistake and biggest triumph. He has been at his school almost 20 years!

What does Michael Jordan have to do with music education? How important is it to obtain a master's and doctorate degrees? How Brian Balmages - another composer - influenced Travis, and how he was influenced by Beethoven too. You don't want to miss three pieces of advice for those interested in composing. You may be surprised!

Check out Travis' website or follow him on twitter @travisjweller. You can also order his music on JW Pepper.
