Ever walk by the venerable Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore’s Mt. Vernon neighborhood and wonder what exactly goes on inside? Peabody has been fine-tuning musicians from across the globe for more than 150 years.  Renowned cellist and instructor Amit Peled, along with his student Joseph Staten give us a window into what it’s like to teach and learn at one of the world’s finest music conservatories.

Melissa Gerr is a producer for On the Record. She started in public media at Twin Cities Public Television in St. Paul, Minn., where she is from, and then worked as a field producer for Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland. She made the jump to audio-lover in Baltimore as a digital media editor at Mid-Atlantic Media and Laureate Education, Inc. and as a field producer for "Out of the Blocks." Her beat is typically the off-beat with an emphasis on science, culture and things that make you say, 'Wait, what?'
