Hello, my name is Jean-Philippe Tremblay and I’m the artistic director and principal conductor of Orchestre de la francophonie. In this first edition of our new 2020 season video series, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to a great friend and contributor to the OF program. He’s one of the foremost music teachers I know, and he has been the director of pedagogy at OF from its inception: Douglas “Pace” Sturdevant. Retired principal trumpet of the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Pace is also one of Canada’s most experienced distance learning instructors. In this episode, Pace talks about his many years experience with technologie and music tuition as well as some of his most memorable moments as a mentor and coach.
