Teaching Philosphy: I believe in attainable goals and small steps that make big differences. I believe that all students who want to learn music have the ability to cultivate an aptitude for music. I take an individualized approach for students of all walks of life, as no two students will ever be exactly the same. I am gentle and patient and understanding when it comes to student progress. I want my students to have fun with music & learn the joy of the process rather than only fixating on the result of learning.
