Sharing a passion for music
Every week, I strive to create opportunities for expression and learning by establishing a positive, upbeat, and engaging environment where students feel comfortable and confident. We have amazing students who are enthusiastic and delightful to work with. A music educator is to celebrate not only the performance, but the process, and that is my goal.
