“I have three passions: music, math, and teaching. I am very fortunate that my career is involved with two of my passions, which is teaching math. In 2017, I came across Southern California Marimba and saw how the staff worked hard with no pay but full of passion to promote music to the underprivileged, helping them advance in their musical careers. I decided to join them, and through that, fulfill my third passion.” – Lana Lam, Director of Education
