Meet Prof. Amanda Heim
Prof. Amanda Heim of the Sunderman Conservatory of Music at Gettysburg College shares why Sunderman is such a special place to grow as a musician.
“I would be remiss to not include both Prof. Avner Dorman and Prof. Russell McCutcheon as my most influential faculty mentors. I can’t begin to say all of the lessons that I’ve learned and applied from both of them. Above all, they taught me the value of a keen sense of practicality and when to leave that practicality behind.”
— Diego Rocha ’19
