Teaching Philosophy

I believe that every student should be taught in a manner to best accommodate his/her learning needs. I train students to be well-rounded musicians by meeting them where they're at and strengthening their weaknesses while working on assignments that interest them. Additionally, I treat students of all ages like adults. I give homework assignments and expect courtesy to allow for a positive & consistent learning environment.
