Warren plays the bass, walks Rufus and listens to audiobooks on a regular basis.  His favourite aspect of running the school is seeing and hearing the progression of young students as they take to their instruments.  The joy that music brings never gets old.  Snider Music's rock bands &  music nights are especially a highlight for Warren throughout the school year.
