Austin native Saul started playing music as a self-taught guitarist in his early teens. Through mentors and the experiences in his high school music programs, he developed a love of classical guitar, jazz, and instrumental music. After graduating high school, Saul went on to pursue his passion for music and education at the collegiate level.
Saul believes that learning music can help develop creative thinking. Students who study the arts can learn to think creatively. This kind of education can help them solve problems by thinking outside the box and realizing that there may be more than one right answer. Additionally, students can fight stress by learning to play music. Music is especially helpful in helping students find an emotional outlet. Students of music can be more emotionally developed, with empathy towards other cultures. They also tend to have higher self-esteem and are better at coping with anxiety.
