The financial literacy/capability/empowerment (the name keeps changing) movement isn't making the impact that had been hoped for. Why not? One young person told me that we didn't make saving sexy. Wow! So true. If the laws of attraction can be applied to money then millions of people, especially women, have a much better chance of becoming financially secure.

In general, I try to instruct my music students on an individual level. I teach 1/2 hr and hr music lessons on any saxophones, clarinets, flutes, AND beginning piano. I also try to incorporate history & music recordings in each lesson to give each student something to strive for and to help them in an auditory and visual manner. I also inspire my students with stories of my professional career & my musical colleagues' in regards to some of the musical luminaries I have performed within the last 25 years. I have my Doctorate in Music so my rate may be a little higher than a college student, but I guarantee success and will travel to YOUR HOME!
