      Teaching Philosophy: I believe that every student can learn to play music. The level of their success depends on how much time and effort they put into practicing. I always strive to help each student reach their musical goals, while at the same time teaching them to read music and gain a skill that they can use throughout their lives. I encourage my students by avoiding using negative words, but at the same time I also push them to achieve difficult goals. Hard work plus a good attitude can accomplish great things.
