      Teaching Philosophy: I think lessons should be fun, so I start with short pieces that many students can play instantly. I also love it when students make up their own music, so I enjoy teaching improvisation and a little music theory to more advanced students. I enjoy presenting new challenges and techniques. If you play with a pick, this could be learning fingerstyle, if you play fingerstyle, this could be learning to play with a pick. And last but not least, I want students to play music they like.
