Approach to Teaching:

My strengths as a teacher come from my 30+ years of experience as a musician, performer, and teacher. I use patience, humor, and diverse musical knowledge to help create a great experience for each student. My approach to teaching is flexible and custom tailored based on the goals of each student, their musical ability, and their desires. Building a solid musical foundation is emphasized for the beginning student. For more advanced students, things like improving technique, musical knowledge, building a repertoire and practice and performance skills are emphasized. Above all, having fun is most important. You're never too old or too young. Let's see what we can learn today and make it happen!
