About this pro

My students love playing their instruments. Some have played in All State Orchestra, youth orchestras, gotten large scholarships to play in college. 

I love seeing the positive impact that becoming proficient gives to a student and how they become passionate and identify with being a musician as part of who they are.  I'm not talking about making a career out of it but always being able to enjoy and share it.
