I am incredibly passionate about constantly learning and growing in music. I have seen the incredible leaps and bounds that I have taken in my growth as a musician and I only want to see that for my students. My teaching philosophy is a perfect balance of technique and improvisation (improvisation aids in finding your own voice). Being from a classical and jazz educational background, I understand how important learning technique is. I also understand how finding your own sound, and your own way of delivering the music is just as important as technique.
