What inspires me: My family, friends, and students. Seeing the way playing music can impact someone on any given day inspires me to be a better performer and teacher every day to reach those I love and care for.
Why the arts matter: The arts give the opportunity to anyone at any age to express themselves and continue to develop new skills. It doesn’t matter if someone is brand new to an art, or if they have been practicing their art for 50 years, there is always room to learn new skills and continue to always strive to be better!
