    Not many teachers can say that they are an active teacher and performer; fewer of those can say that they maintain their own private studio at the end of their public school day. That being said, I think what really separates me as a teacher is not my many hours of teaching, but rather my dedication to my students. I teach outside of my public school job because I feel that music can be a powerful and underrepresented force in a student's public school education. I strive to help students realize musical concepts in ways that inform both their musicianship, and their concept of learning.
