Teaching Philosophy

My main goal as a teacher is to help people of all ages, levels, abilities and backgrounds experience joy in music. We focus on fundamentals of technique and understanding the instrument because these are essential to success. We also take a project-based approach that is built through pursuing the student's individual interests and following their own inspiration. With a balance of traditional learning methods and personal motivation, lessons are about more than just teaching a student to play - they are about enriching people's lives and enabling them to find true expression in the world.
