I teach students not only how to advance with their instruments but how to become musicians and help them to understand how music can play a vital role in their growth and development in other areas as well. My teaching style is more modern in a sense that I try to relate everyday things students go through, to music in a way that is fun and active for the students but stimulating as well. My students often leave their lessons in a more positive and upbeat mood then when they first entered.
