Any fun facts about yourself that you would like to share? 

I love sharing music through teaching and Dr. Suzuki’s philosophy of “beautiful tone, beautiful heart.” I believes that just as language is the means by which we shape our thoughts and the words we know give us the perceptions, thoughts and emotions we experience, music adds a depth of love and beauty that is beyond all words and that all children should learn this language of beauty and love.
