My Teaching Philosophy…

is compassionate, nurturing, and collaborative. Lessons are structured but leave room for fun. I believe that a student new to their instrument will thrive when they:

  • have a parent keeping them accountable to practice during the week (parents observing lessons is highly recommended)

  • have fun while learning proper technique to avoid harmful habits down the road

  • choose songs that are interesting to them while the teacher picks songs that will help them grow

  • are given foundational tools and approaches to further lifelong learning as they get older
