      Teaching Philosophy: I have a very gentle approach to teaching using patience and kindness to encourage all students, regardless of age. I believe ALL CAN LEARN an instrument. I teach songs right away, especially on Piano. This makes learning fun and enjoyable. I simplify complex skills to make playing easier and quicker. Emphasize bite-size learning, repetition, review and encourage frequent little practices to increase growth. Lessons are a gift to others or yourself to start a lifetime skill of enjoyment!
