"My entire career has been dedicated to the idea that the experience of learning and making music has tremendous power. Yes, students who make music can explore their talent, have fun, and make friends, which are all important. However, I have seen firsthand the true transformation that takes place when a student discovers that they can perform something they never thought possible, work harder than they ever have before, create something new out of thin air, and build something beautiful with others. That kind of learning experience truly unlocks incredible potential in children. I am proud to work for an organization that places the transformational power of learning music at the forefront of everything we do with our students."

"Music is a powerful tool, a universal language, and a form of communication. The work we do at TPMS is crucial in a world that can see so much progress. I have personally witnessed how artistic excellence can transfer into the everyday lives of my students and am honored to share my skills and show our students the different ways music can transform their communities."

"As a former not-for-profit music student and CPS student, I have been given so many opportunities growing up. I have found my creative outlet, my path, and my mission in life -- to spread the joy of music and to help our students find their voice! TPMS's mission is so near and dear to my heart and I am in constant awe of the students, families, teachers, and staff at People's. It is not just a music school, but it is one big family and community that I am so proud and honored to be a part of!"
