      Teaching Philosophy: I feel as though teaching music is one of the biggest ways that I can contribute to my community as a whole, as well as to the well-being of individual people. When you learn music, you're doing something that is just for you; a way to express yourself beyond emotions and just words. For kids, you are offering an outlet or even just an experience. For adults, you may be fulfilling a lifelong dream to be able to create music. With a strong technical framework, you can play anything.
