Teaching Philosophy: "Music is both an art and a craft. While the goal and pursuit of the process is always to express the artist's personal sound and emotion, there are many fundamental techniques that facilitate that expression. In addition to providing instruction on technique, the best guidance I can offer a student is to call their attention deep into their own process. With close attention to how they are playing and the results of their method, my students are learning to become their own best teachers."
