At our core, we are all musicians. There is a yearning desire in many of us to create, explore, and grow through our medium that is undeniable. If we stopped being musicians, it’d be like asking the birds not to sing their morning melodies, or asking a newborn baby not to cry. Music calls us and we answer.
Some of us musicians also have the same irrefutable urge and capacity to share and educate others in the secret language of music. When you find an instructor who is just as passionate about being a musician as they are about being an instructor, you’ve likely found an excellent scholar who will set you up to discover or enhance the greatness you already possess.
