Why I Teach
Each day in the classroom or rehearsal room is an experience like no other. Teaching is art and music is one of the great fine arts. It fuels life and joy in all of us who join together in making this art.
In the classroom, there is always inspiration and collaboration among like-minded individuals. Here, relationships are built that last far beyond the college years. After discovering the passion, drive and curiosity students bring to each class, these relationships grow as they use the great language of music to convey their artistic expressions, emotions and creativity.
