“I love how the program stretched me as a musician and ... bumped my musicianship up 10 notches, probably more. Robert Glasper [More Music @ The Moore Music Director, 2017–2018] is someone with a wealth of talent and experience, so getting his perspective on my music and performance was incredibly valuable. He did a piano solo over one of the beats I played! I don't know where else I could have gotten that kind of education.” —Josh Lim, 2017 program alum
