Music is a powerful catalyst for personal growth. Music offers a child a way to learn through expression and creativity.  I believe that the lessons derived from the study of music not only lead to success musically, but with all other aspects of life as well.  It is my mission to provide a fun and relaxed environment conducive to learning. I strive to help all my students become life long learners who appreciate all types of music with an open mind. "I believe music in itself is healing.  It is something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music.  -Billy Joel
