After teaching music for so many years, I have acquired great skills. I know how to best approach every kind of student and situation, how to find the best way to encourage and motivate students. I am very empathetic and friendly and I have an infinite amount of patience. I always bring out the best from my students. I have a vast repertoire and a broad range of teaching techniques.
I adore passing my love of music on to my students. It is amazing watching them evolve and blossom as they improve playing their instruments. I love watching them form bands and begin expressing themselves through music. My favorite part is watching their self-esteem grow as they gain confidence in the instrument.
