About Danika Gooch (founder, main instructor)

"My purpose in music comes from a love of people and of all things beautiful.  Well-working music represents effective communication (through math, through movement, through art); thus I believe and have witnessed that any personality can learn to integrate and enjoy it.  Purewind Studio exists in order for us all to be encouraged through working together, and my desire is that students of every age and ability be inspired toward their full potential."   ~Danika
