Note for teachers
At the beginning of the new year, I would like to take a moment to congratulate each of you from the bottom of my heart. It takes a special kind of person to dedicate your life to teaching music, and I am grateful for your tireless dedication to your students and your craft.
I also want to thank you for your constant curiosity and drive to learn and grow. Your willingness to constantly explore new techniques and approaches not only benefits your students, but also keeps the flame of music alive and well in our world.
As you look ahead to the new year, I want to remind you of the eternal importance of music in our lives. It has the power to overcome language and cultural barriers, to bring people together in harmony, and to heal and uplift the human spirit – it has never been more needed than now. You're not just teaching a subject, you're sharing a gift that will last a lifetime with your students, teaching them incredible human connection and teamwork skills.
