Why do you love teaching? I love seeing the students get excited over a mastered skill or a successful performance. It brings me so much joy when a student learns that they have a passion for singing or playing music.


Why Music? 

"Music is something that brings the entire world together. We are surrounded by it in every aspect of our lives. I love teaching music because it gives my students a creative outlet to express themselves and a chance to learn about one of the most important cultural aspects in their lives. As a child, music gave me a feeling of belonging and opportunities that have led me to where I am today."


Fun Fact - I used to work at Symphony Hall where I got to see the Boston Pops shows 3 times a day throughout December!
