What's your favorite thing about teaching?

"My favorite thing about teaching is engaging in music-making with children every day. We experience music together, learning from one another, sharing creative thought, and designing our own musical experiences. Sometimes our “musicking” brings forth tears of laughter, sadness, or joy. Sometimes it gives us inner peace and inspiration to face challenges with courage. Sometimes music is the vehicle that we use to discuss the larger questions in life. Sharing my love of music with children is the most rewarding career conceivable. For every music note I teach them, they share a symphony of love with me."
