I grew up in a musical family, and music has always been a big part of my life. My desire is to pass my love of music on to others so that they may also enjoy music as I do. Singing or playing a musical instrument is a skill that individuals possess for the rest of their lives and has been proven to largely and positively affect a child's academics in school. I desire to help all children reach their highest potential as a musician and pianist through compassion and encouragement. I am looking forward to making beautiful music with your child this year!
