About this pro

A quality music education is a gift that begins with curiosity and enchantment and ends with confidence and the ability to learn and perform/share with others any piece of music in the world. It's just like learning to read words, so that one can pick up a book, and read to themselves, or to others.

With music, we step beyond words just a bit more because music can include words or not, and has an energy that is independent of words: an energy that connects us with the universe, as well as our human soul.

In short, a quality music education is the ability to sing a song, play an instrument, or tap a rhythm, and know, hear, and feel that miracle of life that is you.
