After 35 years of teaching music in the public education system and at the post secondary level, I retired in 2008. During my extensive experience as a teacher, adjudicator and clinician, I have had the opportunity to view many education systems throughout Canada and the United States.

For this reason I not only support the academic subjects but wholeheartedly endorse the value of elective programs.
