I am deeply grateful for Dr. Lonis’ mentorship over my career. His passionate approach to music-making, his well-researched teaching methods, and his endless supply of practical ideas have hugely contributed to my development as an educator. His clinics have a transformational effect on my students and I learn new things every time he works with us.

It has been an amazing experience working with Ardith Haley – both online and face-to-face sessions. There is so much passion, energy and commitment to enhancing the quality of our work as seen in her detailed feedback. Her coaching style and interactions with others speaks deeply of her learner-centric orientation. She is an authentic role-model and a critical friend who inspires a sense of renewal.
I have had the great fortune to spend time watching Dr. Dale Lonis work his magic with musicians from 12 to 90 years of age. Along the musical journey he teaches, leads and inspires all to become better musicians and better human beings. I have always considered Dale a mentor. I am excited that even more teachers and conductors will be able to access Dale’s brilliant skills through the launch of this new project, Music Mentors International.
