My goal as a teacher is for students to reach their maximum growth as a performer and teacher. All students are different and I want each student to find their personal sound and musical personality. Music performance and education are my way of life. Without music, my experience is incomplete. I enjoy sharing this commitment with fellow performers, audiences and students.
