Teaching Philosophy: John Cage describes it the best in his piece, 4’33’’. His envision of the music was to show that music itself is all around us, even if it is not the way we expect it to be. As such, my goal in every lesson is get you excited for the next, and to work with what you already know to create music that you once never thought would be possible! There is no wrong note per say, just a chord not yet discovered!
