I believe that music plays an important part of each student's education as well as their own self-expression. My short-term and long-term expectations for each of my students differ, based on their individual goals. I feel that it is my responsibility as a teacher to help students realize their own potential on their instrument through positive encouragement, by prompting individual creativity, progress, and most of all, having fun!
