Music can be a powerful tool when used as a universal language to motivate and inspire students to learn. I am presently on faculty at Clark College, Concordia University and of course Music World as a music and guitar instructor. I have developed an educational workshop of the guitar, its’ history, and have lectured as an educator on the importance of art in the community; such as libraries, schools, churches, and museums. I have also offered myself as a liaison to students in the surrounding schools and have been invited to participate in music, advising, and productions. I experience great joy in taking on the responsibility of teacher and mentor and most important a fiend to my students.
