"I believe in emphasizing the fundamentals of music as related to your instrument to build a strong musical foundation.  This enables you to better express yourself musically, have more confidence, play all styles of music, be more creative, and advance more quickly.  But it's not all scales and etudes!  I can guide you in finding a balance between working on the basics and having fun with music you love.  Making music is making joy."
