My students range in age, experience, and musical style - some love to perform classical music, others have an interest in theory and creative musicianship. I can give each student a little bit of everything - and in that variety we grow to understand what is most naturally motivating. I can offer an excellent base of classical technique, but we also discover theoretical patterns through creative drills and structured improvisation.
I enjoy figuring out the unique learning styles of each student, as well as what motivates and inspires. My hope is for every student to discover their own natural curiosity, so I enjoy what I do the most when I see the interest truly come from within.
