Sistema Huronia Music Teacher - Blaine Scott


Quote from Blaine Scott...


"I am excited and honored to be part of a music community that nurtures music developement in young people. Now that my 30 year elementary school teaching career has moved to youth orchestra I see this as a chance to pass on an older generation's belief that music not only adds treasured experiences that will last a life time to the formational years of these young artists but will give them a true sense of working with others and sharing the gifts they are dedicated to developing for the benefit of many. The Sistema music program has these great hopes for our young people. I am glad I can help it happen.
