"My song writing students at Minnesota’s Perpich Center for Arts Education love George Cartwright, which is why I’ve had him back for residencies year after year. George is a terrific teacher—one who understands that his fundamental job is to liberate students’ creativity."
"George’s effectiveness in the classroom is rooted in his own distinction as a songwriter. His songs are like no one else’s. Their wit and imagination inspire students to abandon convention and try something new. Students of all ages and at all levels of sophistication would benefit from George’s teaching. He is a gem." - Janika Vandervelde,Music Composition Faculty, Perpich Center for the Arts, Golden Valley, Minnesota
"It was a blast! My class was enthralled - you were part of the quiz they had afterward and they took a lot of great stuff away from your talk". -William Ellis, PhD Assistant Professor of Fine Arts: Music St Michael's College, Brattleboro, Vermont
"The project helped our students explore their own abilities. It was that piece that connected some of out very talented musicians to each other thought topics that were on their mind. I know of at least one of these students who went on to college with a major in music." - Jayne Early Music teacher Parkview Center School.
