MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY: I believe that every child can play an instrument at a high level. My goal is to help my students gain happiness and beneficial life skills through the study of their instrument. I enjoy being a part of the beautiful relationship between parent, child, and teacher. Through daily listening, daily practice with a parent, and frequent lessons, I strive to work together with students and parents in instilling a love of music and learning. I know that when all the integral parts of the Suzuki philosophy are in place, excellence is achievable.
