I teach students not only how to advance with their instruments but how to become musicians and help them to understand how music can play a vital role in their growth and development in and outside of music. My teaching style is more modern in a sense that I try to relate everyday things students go through, to music in a way that is fun and active for the students but stimulating as well. My students often leave their lessons in a more positive and upbeat mood then when they first entered. Ive been teaching at the Sheerwood Community center here in Fairfax for about 3 years now and my students love the atmosphere. Please feel free to ... View Profile
