"Owen has taught clarinet and piano to my ten year old son for a year. He is very energetic and patient; at the same time he takes the time to know my child and help him build a sense of responsibility towards music. Couldn't be happier!" 
Juliana V. [parent]

"Owen is a very inspiring teacher. He is well prepared for my lessons, and continually makes each lesson challenging, but at the same time fun. He clearly demonstrates that he is a dedicated music educator and that he is interested in my success as a student."
Deborah C. [student]

Over the extent of one week, Mr. Broder worked directly with the saxophone students in private lessons, led saxophone sectionals, directed a full rehearsal of the Meadows Jazz Orchestra, and performed for our students. Since I assumed the role of director three years ago, I can confidently say that this residency has been the single most valuable experience for the progression of our ensemble and saxophone students.
- Dylan Smith [director, Meadows Jazz Orchestra, SMU]
