“In my short time so far, I have been impressed with the positive attitude and work ethic of the students.”
Teaching Philosophy and Approach
“I try to challenge my students to be the best they can be. I try to make sure they know that with hard work anything is possible. I also try to keep the lessons fun and find music that they enjoy playing.”
I enjoy biking and gardening. And cheer for our local baseball team, the Nationals!
