From 1979-2018, Steve Call taught tuba, euphonium, jazz piano, jazz improv, and jazz history/studies at Brigham Young University. When I came to BYU to audition in 1995, Steve is the one who heard me and decided to let me in to the school with a partial scholarship. He directed The Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band combo that I was a part of for 3 years, and taught me so much about what kind of musician I wanted to be. I owe so much of what I am today to Steve.
Students don't need to see how awesome you are during your lesson. The moment you make everything about you is the moment they lose confidence in themselves and feel defeated. The line between "inspiring" someone and "showing up" someone is very thin. Be careful.
