As a passionate, versatile, and motivating music educator, I am dedicated to help students achieve their own personal goals, while delivering the fundamentals of music in an enjoyable way that motivates students to want to keep learning and discover new things about music and themselves. I encourage students to discover what excites them about listening to and playing music, and help them take advantage of ensemble and playing opportunities in their communities, thereby creating exciting, practical, and goal oriented reasons for dedicated private lessons.
