      Teaching Philosophy: I believe all students have an innate ability to make music. From infancy through school-age to college and adulthood, music is a basic part of our lives. Just as those who participate in sports, music is also a training ground for teaching discipline, confidence, focus, muscle memory, and forming a good work ethic for whatever path they follow. It connects both sides of the brain to function as a "team effort" and helps that individual be the best version they can be.
