◈ At Adventist University of the Philippines
◈ Graduated 2001

list bulletAbout my college education: It is interesting because I love music, that is my passion. It is difficult because of the difficult subjects and the new skills in music that I need to learn. It is enjoyable because I feel glad that whenever I perform or teach people, they were inspired and became happy. It is challenging because the new skills were difficult that really need my full attention, time, money and effort.

The student needs to be really patient and hard working in practicing the repertoire for voice and piano or other instruments in order to get the skills needed to be mastered. Though the student is very talented still he needs to practice as in correct practice to be able to gain more skills and be more equipped.
