I believe in helping students develop an intrinsic motivation for music through creativity and exploration. My lessons are tailored to students’ individual learning styles; for me, each student is a puzzle, and each lesson reveals new pieces to put together. With over 15 years of experience teaching, and countless hours of training and performing, I relish the challenge of finding unique ways to help each individual succeed at making music!
Lessons are available in my studio, but I also travel to students’ homes. I work with students of all ages, including adults. My studio holds performances twice annually, and students are encouraged (but not required) to participate. I am also well versed in preparing candidates for music development exams such as the XXXXXXX.
