It is a huge privilege to be back at NAISAK, a wonderful school that places the children at the very heart of each and every aspect of school life. Fundamentally, I believe that music is about enabling children to achieve their full potential so that they can lead happy, self-assured and meaningful lives in the bigger community.
I was very proud to call Qatar my home, having lived there for 8 years. I was significantly involved in all areas of the music department's development helping to establish its excellent Arts Department within NAISAK. In the last 2 and a half years I worked as a language and music teacher, teaching English in South Africa to English first language speakers at a prestige school.
The current generation of young people in schools today will be the problem solvers of the future and equipping them with the means to not only deal with problems but to create a better world is central to my purpose as a music teacher working closely with the Juilliard Performing Arts School’s teaching artists.
