Mission and Passion

I praise God that every day I get to wake up and do what I love to do so much; make and teach music!!!! I have a great passion for music and for conveying that passion to others. It is my prayer that through my humble efforts, others may learn to maximize their musical gifts and use these for God’s great glory.

Inspiring Verse/Quotation

These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. – Revelation 3:7-8

“The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. – Winston Churchill
