I grew up learning the oboe in school and fell in love with music through one of the stranger woodwind instruments. I was first chair from sophomore year through the end of high school before switching to guitar when I got to college. As many kids do, I tried my hand at starting a band, but fell in love with music theory. I graduated with a degree in music theory and began looking to pass my knowledge to kids.
My favorite movie is School of Rock because it has so many great lessons in it about reaching students. I believe that students can succeed in all subjects with a strong music education and I want to teach them discipline and problem-solving through music.
