Teaching Artist Statement
I consider myself a lucky person in that I get to do what I love every day in using music to make a significant impact on individuals' lives. I love being a therapist and teacher and enjoy working as a member of South Shore Conservatory's Creative Arts Therapies team. Working with my clients every day brings me such joy and to watch them grow through the use of music is a wonderful thing. I hope to continue to work with a variety of clients and to encourage them to express themselves and to learn about themselves through their love of music.
