"Music has always been what feels right to me. I wake up and live and breathe music. I can not stop picking up new instruments to learn and share with others. Playing a song can be challenging but that challenge is fun when it is a tune. It is this passion that I want to instill in others. I love that I get the opportunity to engage with students and families with a simple melody. Music has history connected to us as humans, communities, and memories within our own families and close friends. Music is a way of life and I get to teach it! I look forward to seeing students come in to experience picking up that new instrument and engage in that creative passion."
