Teaching Philosophy: As a teacher, I aim to guide my students to mastery of topics related to their instrument, as well as instill a love and respect for the process of getting there. While working with me, students will gain knowledge and appreciation for music performance, music theory, music history, and aural skills. With music being such a large subject area, I aim to help students explore multiple facets that inform their skills as performers.
