Teaching Philosophy: I believe that music students learn the most ,and the fastest, when the basic fundamentals of music are presented in a practical fashion, with repertoire selection that suits the students' level. My goal as a teacher is to help my students to bridge the FUNdamentals (Scales, Rudiments and chord progressions), and the practical side of music. My goal for my students is to be able to grow their confidence, and hopefully develop their skills into a playing situation , with other musicians.
