Philosophy of Education

Music Education is essential to the growth and development of all students. Every student, no matter their cultural background or their socioeconomic status is equally deserving of a quality education. There is no one correct way to teach music, and it is the responsibility of the Music Educator to be open to change, and willing to teach in whatever way best meets the needs of their students. Music is, at its core, a form of art, and Music Educators should help their students find the joy that exists in the act of creating something new and beautiful.
