"I must actively and readily establish, provide, and promote music education in the schools, community, and lives of any and all I come in contact. I must make aware the importance and relevance music has to the enrichment of lives. I must always create situations that challenge, entertain, and develop minds. I must stimulate interest in students for music and motivate students to strive for excellence. And I must daily better myself as an educator, listener, and musician, not necessarily in that order."
