I believe that everyone is gifted with musical ability and it is my privilege as a teacher to encourage this ability to grow into something wonderful. I aim to provide a supportive environment with honest yet positive feedback to help students become confident and self-motivated. Listening, evaluating, and learning how to use those observations to improve the way we play are all skills which I encourage my students to use to become independent learners. Every student has a unique set of abilities and way of learning, which is something to be embraced. I strive to tailor my teaching style to the individual needs of each student. Learning to play the piano can be a life-changing experience and it is my privilege to help make that experience the best that it can be.
