About this pro

My top priority as a teacher is to instill in my students the same love of music that I have, and to offer every opportunity possible to expand their knowledge of all music, whichever style they choose. My students have a variety of different goals: for example, some have gone on to become music educators themselves, entered competitions and auditions for various groups, and participated in the Youth Orchestra of Bucks County. Others have decided to study popular music and have joined rock bands, written original music, and learned to improvise. I enjoy guiding my students to find their musical niche, and look forward to helping new students discover their creativity.
