Over the years I have come to discover that music is more than just strumming a guitar or pushing keys on a piano. Music is a form of communication and self-expression. It is my heartfelt desire that my students get comfortable enough on an instrument that they can express themselves through playing. Younger students may not appreciate this as a goal but one day they will.  Everyone learns differently. I like to meet people where they are. Whether young or older, experienced or completely new to music, I find a place for each student to pick up the musical thread and begin to follow it. There's all kinds of music to discover - rock 'n ro ... View Profile
