As a teacher, I believe that every child can learn given the right environment and encouragement. I work with mature students and parent/child teams by assigning small, success-oriented steps which lead to great musical development. I work with each student where they are (emotionally, physically, and musically) at the time of their lesson. I assign specific tasks to practice including reviewing old pieces, plenty of musical listening, and technique for the working and preview pieces.
It is my goal that each student will ultimately find fulfillment in music which will enrich their lives and the lives of those around them.
