Over the decade as I have worked with students of all ages, and across different platforms, one thing has remained constant — the children always amaze me at their thirst for learning, their desire to do their best, and their appetite for beautiful and fulfilling musical experiences.

In the private music studio, it is my hope that students enjoy lessons, while constantly being challenged to become better musicians.

As a teacher, I encourage and expect my students to actively participate in their musical learning. Students are invited to experience, evaluate, and discover music throughout their lessons. It is my hope that they take their experience with music in lessons, and go out into the world better equipped to perform their own music, and actively engage in community musical experiences for the rest of their lives.
