Teaching Philosophy: I believe that music education should be accessible to everyone, regardless of race, age, gender, learning ability, or any other factor of diversity. My role as a teacher is to not only give students the chance to explore their musical abilities, but to enrich their lives with the joy of music. I like to shape my lessons to what the students' personal goals are in their instrument, giving them the tools to reach their fullest potential while also making sure we are having fun!
