Philosophy

Philosophy

From decades of performing with and educating musicians of all ages, I have found that teaching with patience, creativity, the highest musical integrity, unwavering expectation of students' best, a desire to excite others, and complete acceptance of my students as people in the world leads reliably to their enjoyment and mastery of music.

 

My utmost goal is that my students enjoy a life-long pursuit of musical integrity that expands their creativity, and that they understand meaningful engagement involves work and joy in equal parts.

 

I provide all students with well-developed musical knowledge, self-knowledge, performance expertise, and most importantly, an excitement and curiosity for continued engagement with music at their highest ability long after their time with me.
