My favorite moments in teaching are the moments when a student overcomes an obstacle. They are able to overcome that obstacle with my guidance and their own hard work and dedication, and the result is beautiful music that they can share with family and friends.
She is patient and explains things clearly so my daughter understands and I can help with practice at home
Before we start lessons, I have a free meeting with the new student and/or parent to get to know them and their goals. We go over the ins and outs of lessons, and if we both think it is a good match, we will set up the first lesson and get started on achieving those goals!

I started teaching in high school as a Guided Practice Teacher, helping elementary and middle school students with their school orchestra assignments.
I have worked with students from all walks of life – from 4 year olds to senior citizens. I have also worked with students that had special needs. While I am not specially trained to teach special needs individuals, I have had some success while working closely with the parent/caregiver, and I am open to working with special needs children and adults in the future.
My advice would be to consult with the teacher before starting lessons, and if possible, to observe one the teacher’s lessons. This will offer you a wealth of information so you can make an informed decision before starting lessons with that teacher.
