“Music is a very personal expression of one’s own self. As a teacher, I love getting to know my students, what motivates them, and their unique reasons for learning to play. Musicality, proper technique, and developing good practice habits are priorities in my teaching. My goal is to give them the tools they need to express themselves through music, developing the next generation of musicians.”
