Teaching/Instructional Philosophy:

Patience And Commitment For Learning Are Important To Me.  I Strive To Uphold The Utmost Professional Decorum For All Of My Students.  Their Confidence In Their Ability To Learn Music As They Also Learn Their Instrument Is Very Important. 

I Focus On Understanding What My Students Want To Get Out Of Their Learning Experience So That Each May Reach His Or Her Goal(S).  Some Students Want To Train For Scholarships To The Best/Biggest Music Academies In The World, Others Simply Want To Play In A Garage Band Or During A Camping Trip.  Still Others Are Professional Musicians At The Top Of Their Game Seeking To Expand And Develop Further.

Of Critical Importance Is That My Students Feel A Musical Connection So That When They Reach Their Goals Under My Instruction, They Have A Heightened Sense Of Accomplishment.
