      Teaching Philosophy: In music education, the private setting with a master teacher is the most effective for optimum results on any instrument because the teacher serves as a musical model to inspire and motivate the student. Beginners learn good playing habits for the chosen instrument over a band class, and the student receives individual attention for personal problems. Students must understand that a professional teacher will not be effective without daily personal practice, a very necessary part of success.
