Music is a wonderful gift that speaks where words cannot. My goal in teaching music is to to give others the opportunity and privilege to be able to use music to the fullest. I strive in teaching to give students a solid foundation in music theory, as well as work on the techniques that come with using their instrument. In the beginning, I'll evaluate where the student is at and continue to evaluate as time goes by, readjusting (if needed) my approach. I always keep with me, my own personal experiences, in taking lessons, and use it to help others in their own encounters with music, and learning how to play. I am always open to teaching different genres, styles or new music, and am sensitive to each student's tastes.
