    Not company owned or operated, I stand to provide music education at exactly what that means - teaching music. Not just notes or rhythm, but the true meaning behind music. Although I have trained classically for over 16 years and am well versed in reading music and the like, i’ve learned to put far more emphasis on not only reading music, but playing as it was intended. This is a knowledge I intend to pass down to my students.
