Why have you chosen “Fill the Void” for your volunteer commitment?
A gym is not a functional space for performance. It limits the possibilities and achievements of our students. It’s time that they have a space that will enhance their work and expand our opportunities for creativity and collaboration.
As a music teacher, I am obviously passionate about how music and the arts shape and enrich our lives. I believe that music can unite a widely diverse group of people and teach them to have empathy, compassion and cooperation. Through the arts we can teach self-confidence, emotional awareness, physical presence, leadership and perseverance, among other skills. The work that we do in the music classroom is legitimate and worthy of showcasing in an appropriate venue.
