Music is an incredible tool for bringing communities together! Creating a welcoming, inclusive, and accessible environment is very important for each student to get the best out of their musical learning experience. Every student learns differently! Hadley believes that each student’s unique learning style should be celebrated, and musical materials should be presented in fun, creative, and engaging ways.
