Music is the “heart” of a healthy and well-educated child

You’ve heard me say it before, “math and science are training for the brain, music and art are training for the heart, neither of which we can live without.”  It’s not my quote and I really don’t even remember where it came from, probably a book I had to read in college for my “Philosophy of Education” paper that was so important as a budding young music teacher.  Now after so many years of helping to grow students into tuneful, beatful and artful individuals, I truly understand these words and I am able to see it in these wonderful children I teach everyday.  I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to teach music, something I absolutely believe whole-heartedly in and something I passionately love.

Please watch this award-winning video that perhaps sums it up best-



I’m looking forward to a new school year and all of you wonderful musicians that will enter the music room!  Here we will learn to be Tuneful, Beatful and Artful!  Get ready for an amazing year my friends!  I can’t wait to see all of you!
