In Their Own Words

"Our number one responsibility to students is a humanistic one; we achieve that through a robust music curriculum."

"I practice what I teach every single week. The curriculum/pedagogy in my courses is relevant and knowledgeable. My extensive experience in a public school classroom supports the music education majors. Throughout the semester, I strive to close the gap between philosophy and reality."
