Teaching Philosophy: I have been trained in the Suzuki Method of teaching and I like using the principles that I have learned from that method. Dr. Suzuki said "Every child can learn to play an instrument," I also believe that parental involvement in lessons is key to children succeeding in lessons. I believe that there needs to be structure to the lessons but I also belive that there needs to be some fun to motivate the student to learn.

teaching guitar while I was at Appalachian State University I think it was 1987. In 1991 I took training to become a Suzuki guitar Instructor and started teaching
