Teaching Philosophy

One size fits all? Hardly. It's obvious that each student has their own strengths and weaknesses, and their unique ways of learning. These individual learning styles influence the way I teach each of my students. Further, my students have different goals in choosing to pursue private music lessons. Understanding these goals allows me to tailor my expectations for each student. I am excited to help you reach YOUR goals.
