Teaching Info

In my studio I welcome students who have a genuine interest in learning. In lessons, I work to encourage students to be the best they can be in consideration of their talents and lifestyles, and excellence is promoted. Aspects of technique, style, and sound production are priorities, alongside how to create notes into music unique to each player. I advocate the appreciation of music in general, knowledge of music theory, and I encourage discussion of music careers and the music industry. I teach students of all ages.
