Music Education? I think so.

I wanna be a Music Teacher because, I love to share my knowledge to other people, whether they be younger or older than me. I find passion and fun in teaching. Especially Violin, I taught a student of mine for 2 years on Suzuki Violin. The joy she had learning the joy I had teaching her, because I enjoyed it. I was also taught through Suzuki so I really enjoy that even more. I would like to teach 6-12 graders for Orchestra, but privately I want to teach younger kids because its fun when they first start on on Violin, its like I become a little kid again.
