Basic Teaching Philosophy or Special Music Interests/Specialties

One of the many wonderful things about music is that it’s usually passed on from a teacher to a student. I strongly value creating personal connections for each one of my students, regardless of age, in order to establish a mutual trust and respect.

My goal is to give students all the knowledge and tools necessary for a lifelong appreciation of music no matter what profession they choose to follow.
