Teaching Philosophy: Music is an important part of culture that has been around since man took its first steps. It is an art form that exemplifies a wide variety of subjects, and can aid in preserving a person's physical and mental health. It is very important that we preserve this art form whenever we can, by passing down our knowledge to others. It is also important to be able to express oneself in a manner that is both emotionally and physically safe, and every piano and voice lesson is structured on this basis.
