Everyone is unique and will play a musical instrument differently and for different reasons, so I will cater what we work on, and what you will practice, based on YOUR individual curiosity, interests and personal goals. I will encourage and help you to discover your own musical voice, and at the same time make sure you develop the best physical and mental habits possible regarding playing an instrument. You will learn to develop deep control over the instrument, and discover why playing music is such a remarkable thing to be able to participate in.

I am a teacher at a public school in Queens. At the moment I am teaching 7th grade ELA, I have worked with ESL, Special Education, General Education and Gifted and Talented students at various age levels. I understand that each student is their own person and has their own learning style and it is my job to find that learning style and adapt to make sure they are gaining the most knowledge possible. I want every student to walk away having learned something from what I have taught them. I want to find new ways that have never been used with them so that they realize that the knowledge is attainable, the assignment is possible. No one should be left feeling as if something is impossible because it's not.

I have traveled to various places all over the world and I feel that my travels have infused my teaching and my personality with excitement and color. I love the arts and I have even won an award for merging my teaching of world literature with the art, music, and history and culture. I use tangibles in my lessons and I think that students learn best when the lessons are fun and interesting. In 2000, while studying in Seoul, South Korea, I was voted "Most Popular Foreigner" by my Korean classmates. I think this proves the following:
1. I am fun.
2. I respect other cultures.
3. I can use chopsticks.
