“I love teaching at Oberlin. The kids are so smart and they are so interested in things. Of course, I’m the one who sees the kids that are interested in things because they become interested in the early instruments. It’s like they are in a candy store.”Catharina Meints, Associate Professor of Viola da Gamba and Cello
