Aside from his performing career, Mr. Scroggins prides himself on clarinet pedagogy and classroom music education. As an educator, he believes his primary responsibility is to give his students the best tools to make their world a better place for themselves and the future. Education is the most critical mechanism a country can provide to its citizens to ensure each’s prosperity to life, freedom, and happiness. Every student has the right to be educated regardless of talent, skill level, or background. Any student can learn music. If enough time and dedication are devoted to the students from the teachers and parents, students will be successful.
