Teaching Philosophy: I believe in catering instruction to the individual, and I see my students as human beings first and musicians second. During the first few lessons, I get to know the student and their strengths and weaknesses. I also discuss goals with both the student and parent, and we develop a plan to achieve both short and long term goals. Materials covered include the fundamentals of brass playing, exercises, etudes, supplemental studies, and solo literature. I love teaching all ages and abilities!
