"Clarity and expression come to us in different forms and are meant to be used to interpret all the many sources of inspiration which surround us, from the benign and painful to the sublime and beautiful. Teaching these students to tap into their personal creativity and inventive methods will enable them to utilize their instrumental techniques in a way which is invigorating and communicative. With this, I hope to foster lifelong musicians who can use their inventiveness to surmount any and all of life's any challenges."
