Basic Teaching Philosophy or Special Music Interests/Specialties

Learning an instrument is far more mental than physical; my job is to help guide each student towards a growth mindset while developing grit and drive. Under these conditions, all young musicians can create beautiful art and accomplish incredible feats on their instruments.
