My Approach to Teaching

“I believe that everyone has the ability to succeed at music if they have the right approach. I tailor each lesson plan to each individual student. That helps us find the right approach and uncover the easiest path to success. I have also pioneered an approach to learning for adults and teens that will have you playing songs you like within 4-6 weeks. I have been teaching for over 25 years and have a long track record of success. I have had many award winning students along the way. Come and be one of them… I look forward to meeting you soon.”
