"I love YSI because it provides a fun and challenging experience for students during the summer - a time where they typically backtrack in their craft. The opportunity to perform in quartets and ensembles is also an unique experience that I did not have as a student, so it is very fulfilling to provide that for the next generation of saxophonists!"
