My Educational Philosophy
Music is a science. Music is mathematical. Music is a foreign language. Music is history. Music is physical education. But most of all, Music is art. I believe that each of my students will learn not only about music, but about discipline, team work, manners, trust, dedication, motivation, and more, all of which will help them to become life-long learners and positive role models.
