Teaching Philosophy: Music education is very important in the lives of children. Going through a music education program has molded me into the person I am. Music allows students to tap into their potential by learning to listen and analyze music through their personal experiences. With hard work, dedication and patience, students receive self-confidence and reap the rewards knowing that they have become better musicians. No other discipline can provide this kind of development in a young person's life.
