I have had the fortune of picking music as my career and through it having a lot of adventures while giving others enjoyment. I had a lot of great moments performing for thousands of people but my greatest adventure is seeing my students on a stage with self-fulfillment and excitement of overcoming their challenges and fears. One of my favorite quotes is "music gives wings to the mind and flight to the imagination" and I strive to be the individual that helps spread the wings of all my students to the maximum and help them succeed in their journey as musicians.
