My Approach to Teaching

“A good pianist will make audiences tap their feet, dance in their seats, and carry their imaginations to a different place through a musical story. I try to inspire my students to find and hone this creative ability inside of them. I am involved with many concerts and program recitals with my students. I hope for my students to understand how much the music skills they develop will help them for the rest of their lives.”
