Teaching Philosophy

Through 20 years of teaching, I have learned how to adapt my teaching style so that it is tailored to each student. I enjoy being part of a student’s musical development process and witnessing their “A-ha!” moments. Achieving musical goals is rewarding, builds confidence.  Through my lessons, students learn to think creatively, critically, and constructively, the skills that help students achieve excellence in all areas of their lives. My desire is to inspire and help students to reach their full potential both in and out of the music world.
