Teaching Philosophy: One's ability to hear is their most valuable attribute and gift from the almighty. One's ability to express through a musical instrument is to demonstrate a developed sense of coordination, concentration and most importantly confidence. Possessing the confidence to express oneself through a musical instrument is to demonstrate one's ability to communicate on any level via any language. The ability to communicate is paramount in a world where the kerfufle of communication is extant.
