Teaching Philosophy:

All individuals have a natural curiosity and desire to learn. A love of music is also universal. Connecting with this innate joy of music and enhancing it through development of skill, musicality and understanding fills the soul with patience, understanding, empathy and compassion. This makes studying music a joyous and enriching experience. With a good teacher and willing student, music becomes a second language that conveys more than words ever can.
