FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My typical process for working with a new student involves an assessment review to find out how much the student already knows about music, and then get an estimate of what kind of teaching style should be used to bring out the most potential in the student.

I am a New York State certified K-12 Music teacher.
