How has music impacted your life?
Music and dance, and all of the arts for that matter, are my passion, both personally and professionally. What I'm about to write is more about "why" music and the arts have had such a strong impact on my life and less about "how."

Music and the arts give us the opportunity to reflect upon our own identities, histories and realities, and they teach us about the identities, histories and realities of people around the world. In our present historical moment, we need to call upon the reflections and the lessons the arts offer us. The arts connect disparate corners of the earth by asking us to consider what it means to be human and how we define the human experience. The arts beg us to consider questions of inequality and injustice and ask us to examine difficult truths. The arts encourage us to deconstruct our perceived notions of the world and reconstruct them again as something more inclusive, and more whole.

We would be wise to infuse our educational institutions with the interdisciplinary connections, the richness of meaning, and the depth of understanding that the arts facilitate. The arts build a sense of community through partnerships and by giving voice to the diverse manifestations of humanity in our midst. The arts bring people together, whether it be a next-door neighbor you never knew you had or a kindred spirit who lives halfway around the world. The arts empower us and give us the chance to become global citizens living in an interconnected global village.
Are you teacher?
I have taught in the past although currently I am doing other things.
