As a Chinese immigrant, I often felt lost at school and on the playground, around those that just seemed to fit so well in American culture. However, Mrs. Breth always emphasized that music transcends all barriers. Through her, I learned that it is always possible to find a connection even between the most disparate of individuals and communities.
It was with Mrs. Breth that I began to connect with music on a deeper level and develop a relationship with what I was playing: she taught me about colors, about balance, about listening, about technique and integrity, about seeking answers to hard questions.
