Teaching Philosophy

Music is a part of everyone’s lives and every student has their unique interests, skills, and abilities. Lessons focus on the individuals student’s needs and interests so that they can enjoy the skills they earn. Learning music doesn’t happen overnight, but the skills students develop in music will give them an entire lifetime of enjoyment, and will help students in everyday life in ways you can’t even begin to imagine. Questions are always welcome.
