Teaching Philosophy

“Every Student has the potential to express their humanity, musically based on their experiences and imaginations. I can teach technique and perhaps suggest stylistic and musical interpretations. I do not want students to copy me nor to be influenced by others. My main goal is to guide the student to make their own interpretation.”

Personal

Virgilio enjoys skiing, RVing, traveling, hiking, and spending time with his pets (4 dogs and 2 parrots).
