Personal Statement

I’ve learned music in two ways: first, from the street, then from a university. I’ve discovered the pluses and minuses of each, taken the best from both, and combined them to get the best result for the student. Music, and all art, is the highest level of communication on this planet; a person gets something from music that they cannot obtain from anywhere else. I’ve written more on the subject of music and art, and you are welcome to read it on my website-or call me anytime.
