Methodology

I believe in the power of music for social change, and besides writing and performing it to touch people’s hearts, the most direct way to change society is by teaching it. No matter if they will grow to become professional musicians or take another direction, music education has greater benefits for those learning it, and the benefits are reflected in everyday life.
