My Teaching Philosophy

I believe in a holistic approach to teaching, tailoring the lessons to the specific needs and interests of each student. I always stress the concept of “becoming your own best teacher” by reinforcing good practice habits and encouraging a spirit of discovery. Learning should be enriching to the mind and soul and, of course, much fun! I am also the Director of Jazz Workshops for the New Jersey Youth Symphony. Many of my students participate in NJYS ensembles – both Classical and Jazz.
