I am a tenured music teacher in the New York City public school system, where I've been for the past 8 years. I am also a composer, arranger, music copyist, and percussionist.
I like to instruct and then let students discover for themselves, as if I gave them a bunch of tools with the instructions and said "ok, so let's see if you can build this shelf." I love watching students' expressions when they know they figured it out.
I set personal goals for myself, and I meet them. To me, that's it's own reward.
MA in Music Education from CUNY Hunter College. BA in Music from CUNY Hunter College. AAS In Music Business SUNY Orange
Aside from teaching music in New York City, I am also a drummer in a punk rock band called The Orgonauts, as well as Tesla's Revenge, Punk Rock Polka Experience, and Cop/Out.
