Effective teachers inspire their students to seek knowledge and understanding beyond what is required in a lesson or course.

As a teacher, my main objective is to inspire my students to become musical and scholarly investigators, capable of self-evaluation, who eagerly choose to be lifelong learners. For me, being a teacher is a commitment to nurturing every student, regardless of the student's innate abilities or previous background; it is a responsibility to remain inquisitive, innovative and passionate throughout one's career and life.
