Otto de Jong
Faculty and Staff:
Otto de Jong is a choir and orchestra conductor who specializes in working with large groups of children. Since 1999, he has been working for Musicians without Borders, training others to work with children. His music workshops, lessons, and rehearsals demonstrate and teach trainers to use the power of nonverbal communication and team building. For Otto, music is a means for children to receive attention, to learn to concentrate, to be in a safe environment in a group setting and, last but not least, to find a source of joy. Music is a universal language.
