Teaching music is more than teaching. It is the facilitation of music knowledge and the sharing of experiences through music. We all experience music performance and appreciation differently. Yet become a team in our performances. Learning is reciprocal: Therefore, young musicians teach us how to become better musicians. We do not just teach to play an instrument or sing. Rather the hope is to instill a life-long love of music and encourage young musicians to contribute to the world of music through their gifts. Music is a major influence in life: developing the "whole person".: What an honor it is to teach such a subject.
