“It is the beauty that we
create that makes me feel the most love for mankind, therefore to me…it’s
all about the arts. As a life long music professional, I know first hand the joy
that self-expression through music can bring. As a teacher, my goal is to give
students the tools that will help them open doors to their own creativity, so
that the joy of self-expression can come into their lives as well”
