"Teaching music has always been rewarding for me and I feel it allows me to play a small part in keeping the cycle of generations going by reinvesting the energy others have shared with me along my journey. I try to provide all my students with the tools that they need to realize their full creative potential. I enjoy watching my students grow a genuine love and desire for learning music, and especially revel in the experience of guiding, encouraging and inspiring young budding musicians." Prema Kesselman
