As a versatile individual, I have had the opportunity to hold a number of professional roles including Music teacher, Musician Instructor, and Private Music instructor. Through theses experiences, I have been fortunate enough to educate a diverse group of elementary, middle school students, high school students and college students.
My goal is to instill a sense of musical appreciation while at the same time teaching students about the technical aspects of music. I believe that music has wondrous and exciting revelations that can be explored t any age and at every level. My hope is to instill the love and benefit of music to anyone who has a desire to learn. I am able to reach out to each student, introduce new concepts, foster a fun learning environment and help students blossom into well-rounded individuals.
