      Teaching Philosophy: I believe in teaching the fundamentals of instrumental music instruction including good sound conception, technique and dexterity, a solid sense of rhythm and time, note reading skills and attention to proper musical style. I also incorporate elements of music theory and history into my lessons, which are tailored to the individual needs of the student. Finally, I try to instill a good work ethic in my students by teaching them how to practice in a manner that is both efficient and fun.
