Teaching Philosophy: "I believe in teaching music holistically. I see musicianship as a tool for personal growth, and I teach my students not only to improve as musicians, but to use those skills outside of lessons to help them towards becoming kind, confident, compassionate people. Lessons are driven by the student’s interests and goals, and foster a healthy foundation in technique as well as a positive relationship with the instrument."
