Teaching Philosophy: Fundamentals is key when beginning a musical instrument. Knowing how the instrument works and how music functions allows a student to become a musician and broaden musical understanding in their own way. Anyone can learn an instrument, and have fun with it too! Learning how to not only practice consistently, but also practice correctly also helps further fundamental development and enjoyment in an instrument.
