Favorite Quote: "I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music." -Billy Joel
Teaching Philosophy: Music is what makes us human. It is the language that everyone speaks. The concepts and skills need to be introduced, developed, and practiced in a sequential process from pre-school through high school in order to give each child a complete education. Music is cross-curricular because it teaches math, history, science, and literacy while building discipline.
