My passion is music, specifically performing and teaching. Music education seems to be the most misunderstood career, and as the years progress, more and more music programs are being cut from schools due to the misconceived notion that cutting the arts will save us from our astronomical debt. By being a music teacher, I think I can change the way people, specifically the older generations, view music, and how it influences students. I firmly believe that students who willingly participate in a class centered around the arts become more well rounded individuals as they progress into adulthood, and while school should be about doing well academically, well rounded students are generally a lot happier than those who focus solely on doing well academically.
