Teaching Philosophy

I believe the most effective teachers are those who utilize a flexible approach.  I’ve found having an open mind allows for students’ individuality, curiosity and creativity to really shine.  I always consider a student’s age, musical background, learning goals and musical interest when making a lesson plan.  This keeps lessons fun and interesting fo each and every student!
