"Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel." Socrates

Ethos & Values

I promote the mindset that hard work, effort and the best possible quality will always be eventually rewarded.

  • Encouraging creativity
  • Opening minds
  • Discovering strengths
  • Deepening intellectual curiosity
  • Developing or strengthening critical / analytical thinking
  • Friendly, harmonious and inclusive environment
  • Vibrant and inspiring atmosphere
  • Contributing to students' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development though the exploration of music and its contents
  • Promoting tolerance and respect
  • Equality and equal opportunities (no superiority / inferiority / exclusivity)
  • No racism
  • All backgrounds, nations, faiths and secularisms welcome
  • Social responsibility

Ethos & What We Do Not Do

I do not welcome individuals who behave inappropriately, bully, harass, stalk, falsely accuse, threaten, abuse, create fake evidence or cut words out of context and twist their meanings. Racial and ideological discrimination also have no place here. Furthermore, I very strongly disapprove of instilling this kind of "norms" in children's upbringing. My approach to education is rooted in the idea that this kind of methodologies, as advantageous as they may be for some people, do not replace hard work, good quality or humaneness and are totally unacceptable.

📖 "Let me give you a definition of ethics: It is good to maintain and further life, it is bad to damage and destroy life."
Albert Schweitzer

📖 “The thinking (person) must oppose all cruel customs, no matter how deeply rooted in tradition and surrounded by a halo. When we have a choice, we must avoid bringing torment and injury into the life of another.”
Albert Schweitzer
