Thank you so much to Nick Platoff and Dan Smith for coming out on Tuesday and sharing with our students about what’s it’s like to be a musician. Nick is the Associate Principal Trombone and Dan is the Associate Principal Bass of the San Francisco Symphony. Nick and Dan talked about what it’s like to perform for thousands of people everyday without being able to talk or communicate with other musicians on stage. Students then did a clapping activity where they listened closely to the beat and clapped accordingly. Multiple students acted as conductors and directed their classmates in clapping at different tempos. . . . . . . . . . #space4us   #musicians   #bass   #trombone   #workshop   #conductor   #sfsymphony  

Yesterday’s morning workshop was led by Joe Vasquez, who is an advisor, angel investor in startups, and an innovation consultant with global brands. Joe is a first generation college student who studied civil engineering at Stanford University. Spurred by his hearing loss, he is always looking for ways to make a positive impact. He sees the value of investing in companies that have great potential to make a difference in the world. During Joe’s workshop, students learned what a CEO/COO/CTO of a company does, the step-by-step process of building a startup from scratch, and then pitched their ideas to each other! . . . . . . . #space4us   #startup   #investor   #stanford   #venturecapitalist   #career   #sanfrancisco
