The concept of music in a school setting conjures up some common images: spit valves being released, guitar strings being plucked, reeds being soaked, and the humble plastic recorder being turned into an impromptu spitball shooter.

In this interview, Erik shares his thoughts on what it is to be a music director in an international school. Musical influences from Bach to John Denver to Mariah Carey, contemplations on street karaoke, and the growing Vina House sub-genre are just a couple of things we talk about in this episode.
