Teaching Philosophy: In my role as a teacher, most importantly I aim to help students reach their musical goals and hopes regarding their specific instrument or voice type. While also educating them on musical technique, style, expression, theory, etc.. all the while it being a collaborative and expressive experience. Music should be fun! I like to target both the expressive and technical aspects of music from the start, to form a solid musical foundation.
