Teaching Philosophy: I have dedicated my life to music and teaching. I love teaching people of all ages at all levels and want to support every person who has a commitment and a dream to perform music. I educate my students thoroughly with discipline, patience, accuracy, nurturing, encouragement, and goal setting to achieve great results. I believe the student's interests, learning needs, and musical tastes should guide the content of the lessons, and it is important to build upon each person's unique strengths.
