I have been teaching music for over 20 years in the US, South Korea, Philippines and now Saudi Arabia. Teaching in international schools is especially rewarding for me since I grew up as an international student myself in Brazil. I started there knowing no Portuguese and having to figure things out myself and with the help of my parents. Many of our students face the same challenges on a daily basis. Helping them struggle through these challenges and seeing their progress is very rewarding for me. Of course, I also love teaching music, especially Grade 5 Band and Choir. Seeing students go from not knowing how to play a band instrument at the beginning of the year to being able to play a complete concert by the end of the year is why I love my job. Our students are very dedicated and work very hard to learn their new instrument. I am honored to work with them!
