what inspired you into music
My father. He played music at home and in the car constantly—often at full blast! Though he’s not a musician, he’s one of the biggest music fans I know.
FAVORITE TEACHING MOMENT
Learning music is about balancing fun and hard work. When a student breaks through a tough spot through hard work and a belief in themselves, it’s a huge reward for me.
