"The intimacy of this learning environment is something very hard to come by, and I think every pre-professional would benefit from this experience"
"I really enjoyed working with all of the faculty, and I know that this experience has created lasting relationships. I know that I can reach out to any of them for advice and that they would be happy to work with me. I also really enjoyed getting to know my colleagues in the program and developing relationships with them"
"The passion and knowledge imparted by the mentors will stay with me forever. The networking was also fantastic and hopefully these working relationships will last long into my career"
"Being able to sing more than once for the same mentor is great, as it allows one to get used to the teaching style of the mentors and to digest the information being given to them. I appreciated the different perspectives the mentors brought to the masterclasses. They have so much to offer that you can't read in books"
"The TSM Academy has world-class instruction, and it was an incredibly enriching experience. The level of performance that you are exposed to is very high, and you learn so much. I felt like I grew so much and was inspired in high volumes, consistently for every day that I was a part of it"
