“Growing up, I didn’t feel represented in the music I studied, sang, and played while a student at the Conservatory in the Dominican Republic. It is this desire to provide a different opportunity for my students that brought me to the music education field.” (IG@wandavgteachmusic and Facebook Wanda Vasquez Garcia)
