Most Influential Teacher

Mohit has identified Mr. Clyde McGuire as his most influential teacher. "Over the past five years, my private lesson teacher has shaped my perspective of the world around me. His light-hearted, motivational and encouraging attitude toward everything he does constantly inspires all those around him. By instilling within me an appreciation for the incredible opportunities available to me and providing me the tools and wisdom to overcome any obstacle, Mr. McGuire has made me a better musician and a more conscientious individual."

Advice to Students

"Do what you enjoy. High school will fly by before you know it, and the memories that will stick with you will be the ones that you create while doing what you love with your friends. It’s easy to lose yourself in the craziness of it all, so take a moment to appreciate all the incredible relationships and memories you have created."
