Teaching Philosophy and Approach

“My teaching philosophy comes from a combination of traditional methods that I learned during my Music Education degree and my Suzuki training while receiving my graduate degree. I would call it a Suzuki-based method with traditional elements. I do my best to teach my students with positivity to encourage their love of music as well as their love of the process of learning. While I may use specific techniques and methods, my ultimate goal is to help every student become a well-rounded musician and a well-rounded person.”
