“I always knew I wanted to be a teacher; even from a young age I enjoyed helping others understand concepts by figuring out different ways to explain things. When I started learning more about music in college, I absolutely loved learning to play all of the different instruments and knew I wanted to show others how to play instruments. I truly enjoy guiding students to find out what they love most about music.”
