Brian Pertl is the Dean of the Lawrence Conservatory of Music and has an absolutely fascinating bio. This talk he did for TEDx is titled "Music Education, Improvisational Play and Dancing Between Disciplines: Reimagining a Liberal Arts Education for the 21st Century" and it is fantastic.
"Creativity allows us to dance in between disciplines" is one of the many great lines that Brian has during this TEDx talk. We could use more creative arts advocates like Brian to fight the good fight. Every school administrator should be made to watch this video.
