A compose, violinist and conductor, Dr. Alexander Weinstangel teaches music at Seneca College “to people who don’t know much about it,” he admits. It’s his job to make “some sense out of it and try to make it a fun and enjoyable experience.”
His job is made much easier by the College, which “invited me to teach and offered me anything I would possibly need to make it a valuable educational experience and an enjoyable experience for me and the students,” he says.
Armed with all the tools he needs, and a love for teaching, Weinstangel finds that he learns a lot from his students, noticing things he wouldn’t otherwise when trying to explain it to someone else. “I love this moment when somebody’s eyes brighten up and someone smiles,” the instructor explains, realizing that’s the moment they’ve understood something that he’s just taught them.
Weinstangle is also impressed by how quickly his classes form a tight bond, becoming “a family who is helping each other learn and grown and progress.”
Currently, Weinstangle is working with Seneca on ways to make the learning experience even more accessible “with online teaching and new ways of introducing media into the course and I think that’s amazing, that’s the way to go. I see a great future in that.”
