    "Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy, it's the universal language of mankind."

    I teach music/performing arts at the Henderson Inclusion Elementary School in Dorchester, MA.  I believe music opens up connections to the student's soul, mind and body.  It enables all to communicate in a universal language.  Using a UDL approach, all students are included to find their voice.

    I support literacy by communicating songs, stories, history and ideas through music and performance.  My arts team and students create, plan and present musical theater using many ways to represent a theme.  Using multiple modalities, (aural, visual, and kinesthetic) we make meaning out of complex ideas.  The performances are shown and shared to a wide audience.  Our auditorium is packed to capacity.

    "Our students are highly engaged while learning through music." - Principal Lampron.

    One Henderson parent described the performances as an incredible inclusive love fest connecting everyone.  Moving the audience to tears, a student who was non-verbal sang "Feed the Birds" solo at our performance of Mary Poppins.

    I am a professional bassist from Berklee College of Music.  I have traveled the world and given clinics and performances endorsed by Pedulla Guitars.  I am the recipient of three Boston Music Awards and have been an artist with VSAM for twenty years.
