A language can take you on an adventure, a supportive guide can lead you there, and a song can tell your story. In Spanish, "cuando se cree, se crea" means "when you believe, you create".  By blending the arts, academics, and language learning, Scout MacKay follows her student's natural curiosity to learn in order to create personalized classes and packages for self-empowerment. 

It takes courage to be creative. Teacher, writer, and musician Scout MacKay founded Language.Life.Music to provide students a platform to take empowering lessons regardless of where they live. She aims to be a visionary to share possibilities and inspire positive change.
