Why I Work Well with Kids

I work well with kids because I enjoy inspiring the next generation of young musicians. Watching the enjoyment of my students as they are learning, showing teamwork, and bonding in the classroom is priceless. I love motivating my students to be the best that they can be. When I see my students wanting to continue on their music journey for the next year, that lets me know that I have done my job.
