I believe that words don't teach, but inspiration can be the mother of discovery. I try to inspire my students by paying attention to what gets them excited while giving them a strong foundation in musical fundamentals, both technical and conceptual. I am aware that many students will stop lessons before they reach their full musical potential, so my goal is to prepare students to lead as fulfilling a musical life as their level of study will allow.
