Alla Aranovskaya is out to shake up music education in the United States, and she's starting in Wichita.
The Russian emigre and first violinist for the St. Petersburg String Quartet doesn't hold back when discussing what she sees as the failure of this country to adequately prepare youngsters for careers in music.
"They come to study music, but they have no tools to play," Aranovskaya, a member of the Wichita State University faculty, says of music majors in American colleges.
