"I believe Music is a powerful communication media. Through musical exploration, we can convey our feelings and thoughts in a meaningful and liberating way. This tool allows us to express ourselves in a fearless and open manner. My mission is to guide the students to give voice to their natural creativity in an emotionally and physically safe, non-judgmental environment. My long experience as a improviser and music teacher gave me the fundations to help others find their own musical being."
