YTV Essay by Geoff Gevalt

Geoff Gevalt

Geoff was a journalist for 33 years at newspapers, magazines and news services in New England, Ohio, Boston, New York City and Baltimore, and most recently was managing editor of the Burlington Free Press.  He won numerous awards as a writer and editor and served as juror for the Pulitzer Prize.  He conceived and began the Young Writer’s Project in 2003 with the assistance of teachers from the Vermont chapter of the National Writing Project, with a mission of building generations of better writers.  He lives in Hinesburg with his wife, Ginny. They have three children who like to make things, including Anna who will be teaching (3pm) and performing (6pm) with Elizabeth LaPrelle on July 22nd at Burlington City Arts (more info about that here).

What I love about the music world is that mentoring – passing knowledge down to someone else – seems to come naturally, particularly in the traditional music genre.

My daughter, Anna Roberts-Gevalt, and her singing partner, Elizabeth LaPrelle, understand this intimately. The two have been performing together for four years and both have gained so much knowledge because so many elder musicians have given freely of time and advice, songs, techniques and stories. Anna and Elizabeth have, in turn, paid it forward; both work extensively with kids in schools, at music camps and individually.

This musical mentorship – such an integral part of Young Tradition Vermont – is based on trust and respect. The trust centers on elders’ recognition that young musicians are hungry and eager and intentional. They want to get better, learn more, expand their horizons. And the elder musicians respect that and they trust that what they pass along is used well.
