Educational Philosophy:

Music will make a student a well -rounded person.  It teaches self discipline, the reward of being part of a performing group and gives a person a sense of fulfillment and enjoyment that many other of the arts do not address.  You also have the opportunity to meet and work with many interesting and talented people, both ordinary and professional.
