Personal teaching style/philosophy: “Lessons are geared for the individual. Learning to read music is essential. If you want to learn music you will make time to practice. The teacher offers advice, insight, corrections, tries to fix bad habits, but it is ultimately the student who is responsible for his or her progress. I teach all ages and listen to all styles. I challenge my student, but I don’t give them anything they can’t handle.”
