“Through first-class education, a generation marches down the long uncertain road of the future with confidence.” —Wynton Marsalis
The emotional connection to music that all humans share is the foundation of my music education philosophy. How I help students to experience meaningful and thought-provoking music is my job as a music educator. I believe active learning, student-led learning, and setting high expectations for yourself and your students are the foundation for thoughtful teaching. In our lessons, we will not only work on mastering the fundamentals of your instrument, but we will also work on establishing your personal goals as a musician and refining your own personal musicianship.
