Ryan Maclin, orchestra director

Q: Why did you chose GCAA?

A: Because it’s a performing arts school and I’ve heard great things about the music program and I saw great things last year when I worked as the head of Suspicion Supervisor.

Q: Where were you before you came to this school?

A: I went to Lindenwood University for music performance education and I also have a masters in education – then I recently just acquired my EDA for Administration.

Q: What’s different at this school then the university you were working at?“

A: I would say more parent interaction. Other than that the kids are awesome and play at a very high level and I guess it’s just different levels of kids versus adults.

Q: Where did you go to college?

A: University of Arkansas; I went there for my undergrad and Lindenwood for my masters.

Q: What is your long term goal for your classes?

A: I would say to just make them as excellent as possible and teach them musicianship and artistry.

Q: What is your favorite instrument to teach?

A: Percussion, but orchestra is growing on me.
