My Teaching Philosophy

I teach each student according to their priorities and goals, learning styles, and personalities. I am extremely patient and have many teaching techniques to offer each student. I emphasize the love of music, the joy of learning, and the feelings of satisfaction and accomplishment that come with practice and persistence. My students have played in all NJYS ensembles, Region and All-State Bands, Honors Recitals, Pit Bands for school musicals, and in Community Service Volunteer Concerts.
