Teaching philosophy

Foundations of DSCN2255music are best established through the exploration of all styles, including the special interests of the student, supported by the development of supple and free technique, and enhanced by instruction in improvisation and composition. This comprehensive approach allows the student to fully experience the joy of music that emerges as the student gains confidence through success, artistry through dedication, and delight in a caring and fun learning environment. Whether pursuing music recreationally, or towards a professional career, the student is well prepared to succeed, and music becomes companion to a life well lived.
