Why did you decide to pursue teaching? “My dad was a band director for 30 years and I also have an aunt who is a music teacher…I went to the University of Dayton for a semester and I was a nonmajor; I just took a bunch of random classes. Then, throughout the semester, I realized I definitely wanted to be a music teacher…I love getting to form relationships with students and help them succeed on their instruments and just continue to grow and make music.”
