Teaching Artist Statement
I believe that private music lessons help people grow. I always strive to make my lessons fun and challenging, while helping the student discover what they really enjoy in music. There is nothing more rewarding for both teacher and student than seeing something “click” for the student after they’ve put in time and effort.
