I see it as a great honor and serious responsibility to be able to teach music. I have a master's in music education, a bachelor's in flute, and have done additional training in the Suzuki method. I recognize that each student is unique and I am comfortable working with multiple levels and ages. I believe all students should feel supported and encouraged to be expressive players and thoughtful musicians.
