Artist statement and teaching philosophy
"I believe that participation in the arts has the ability to provide extraordinary learning opportunities. I am dedicated to encouraging my students to reach their full potential. As this can often be hard work, I am also committed to making sure that my students enjoy their musical experiences. Lessons are planned to each student's specific needs and goals. Lessons serve as a guide in order to facilitate individual practice throughout the remainder of the week. My objective is to foster student's knowledge of music theory, history, musical expression and technique. I look forward to sharing my passion for the piano and welcome students of all ages, levels and backgrounds!"
