Teaching Philosophy: To teach is to bring out the best in all of the students. My philosophy is to take the students where they are and to plant the seeds of knowledge, wisdom and desire to do their best. It is not to be perfect, but to always be better than the previous rehearsal, practice session or day. My mission is to help the students find joy in their playing and performing by developing proper technic, skills and fundamentals on their instrument.
