“Nothing brings me more joy than music and working with children!  Whenever I’m singing with toddlers and observe them dancing to the beat or witness a young student with tears streaming down her cheeks because, ‘the music is just so beautiful,’ then I know that these precious little ones have been inspired by the power of music.”
