Teaching Artist Statement
All humans are inherently musical and capable of expressing themselves through music. The teacher's job is to find a way to connect with the student and draw on the interests that they bring to the lesson or class, assess where they are at in terms of musical development and help them move forward by making music in a joyful way.
