Teaching Philosophy

“I believe anyone has the ability to learn music regardless of ability or talent. All students can be a great player even if they only learn basic level, just a matter of playing from the heart. The key to success is always believing in oneself and one’s ability. Everyone has a personality that they can share with an audience through their instrument, but to reach that potential one must believe.”
