I teach music because not only I love art, but I also enjoy kids. I love interacting with them— kids are happy, fun, witty and I connect easily with them. As for my adult students, I appreciate the enthusiasm they bring to the class because when an adult decides to learn music, they work hard and I find pride and encouragement in their progress and love for the art form.
