Teaching Philosophy
"Music is a natural expressive art form. I believe that everyone is born with the ability to sing or play music at some level, and that each of us learn and express music differently. My goal and desire as a teacher is to motivate and inspire children and adults to make music based on their own individual form of expression. I try to tap into what motivates and inspires children to learn and play. For adults I like to encourage them to enjoy the art of music while having fun during the learning process. It’s important to also show students how to apply what they’ve learned to be able to express themselves fully and create their own unique style of playing or singing - that’s what makes music most fun and enjoyable. I don’t believe in a cookie cutter approach in my teaching. I like to find out what students enjoy most and customize my lessons based on what inspires them to learn techniques that will help them meet their goals as a musician."
