Approach to Teaching:

I am a very laidback teacher with a relaxed approach, and extremely high expectations. When learning an instrument, the fundamentals are essential and I want my students to be the best players they can be. I also believe the best approach to learning is through fun. Students engage in learning when they are involved in the process, this is why I always provide students with choices. It is incredibly important for me to know what kind of student I am working with. My goal as a teacher is to guide all my students to their greatest potential.
