Teaching Philosophy and Approach
“Much of my philosophy comes from the teachers who have inspired me. Almost any student can learn to play the piano with the proper tools, attitude, support and instruction. My role is to find the music within each individual and to draw upon their own creativity and enhance it. Whether a student intends to make music a career or not, my intention is to inspire each person to create their own music that will last them a lifetime.”
