My Teaching Philosophy

I believe music is a naturally occurring phenomenon that humans tap into — that means anyone can learn it! While some people have natural musical abilities, with enough time, effort, and the right guidance, students who are not “naturals” can also learn to play an instrument at an extremely high level and develop a deep understanding of music. Lastly, learning music should be fun, engaging, and rewarding. When students realize what they are truly capable of on their instrument, there’s no better feeling as a teacher than seeing their eyes light up with even more possibility for the future of self expression in music.
