Dennis Askew - Episode 41
Dennis Askew, Director of the School of Music at UNC Greensboro, joins Andrew & Lance to explain how a lowly tuba player gets a gig like that. Dennis has been teaching at the college level for over 25 years and we explore how he went from a newbie faculty member (he was young and cheap) to a newly minted Director (he worked to become organized, consistent and trustworthy, no mean task for a tuba player.) When asked how he prepared for the interview, Dennis reported to listening to roughly ten hours-worth of shows. When asked what he thought of them, he reported, “There were none that I hated.” What an endorsement. Links: Dennis at UNCG Want to help the show?
