Philosophy of Teaching

  • I choose music because it is a way of expressing our inner thoughts and emotions. I believe all students should express themselves through an instrument, including the human voice. 

  • Music is a powerful language that often changes our views and behavioral reasoning through our studies and appreciation of listening to music.

  • Music has been part of my life since the age of six. I have studied all music styles and through my studies, have honed my natural abilities.

  • Music is a subject that touches on all avenues of education. It develops the analytical side of the brain (math) as well as the creative side (language).

  • Music sharpens memory skills, encourages creativity, and most importantly, builds confidence in individuals to live and cope in today’s world.   Life has many challenges; music heals and should be part of every person’s life, making us more sensitive to the needs of others and understanding life around us!  

Style of Teaching

I conduct lessons plans according to learning style and ability of each student. I teach students of all ages. I cover music fundamentals and advanced music theory. I teach Classical, Jazz, and Contemporary styles of music, with particular strength in developmental piano techniques.
