Every student is unique, and therefore every student deserves an equally unique teaching method. I have seven years of experience giving music lessons to young children, teens, and adults; as a result, I have learned to adapt my teaching style and cater to the needs of each student. My goal is to make playing a musical instrument as accessible and enjoyable as possible, to students of all ages and backgrounds. Though my main area of focus is classical music, I also enjoy teaching other popular styles of music. I encourage my students to start with music from genres they are most passionate about.
Numerous studies show that music enhances cognitive performance, emotional intelligence, work ethic, and creativity, all of which are essential to a successful career in any field of study. I bring about these qualities in my students by giving out homework each week, encouraging them to practice daily and to listen with a critical ear and mind, as well as by helping them with posture, technique, and with forming their own musical ideas.
Playing a musical instrument can be a deeply personal thing; as a teacher, it is my goal to help students find their own distinctive voice and channel for self-expression. Most importantly, I hope to make learning an instrument a positive experience for all my students, whether music becomes their profession or their hobby. Making music is a very satisfying and fulfilling experience, and I love helping others in pursuing their musical journey.
