As a adult with ADHD, traditional music progress has always been a struggle - short attention and difficulty focusing in long-lengths. Despite this .. learning to make music for myself that both captures my creativity and curiosity, instead of what others wanted to hear has opened up a new appreciation and respect for myself. When dealing with ADHD or other emotional issues is significant boon.
Music is a wonderful tool for moving our emotions out of the hidden spaces within ourselves. As a teacher I am more concerned with helping my students realize the importance and impact of their progress in relation to themselves, rather than the merit of their progress in relation to other's skill.
I look forward to learning together!

My strongest attributes as a student, a teacher, a friend, and human is my ability to interact with those around me with patience and curiosity.
I approach everything I do with curiosity, because I believe that is when we reveal our selves- the meaning of life is not a question that is asked to us, but rather asked by us.
Why such an emphasis on curiosity?!?! As an adult with ADHD(incessant curiousity) I am working on constantly growing, and I am interested in helping others who struggle with similar issues grow despite the limitations they may perceive as impassable.
When we learn to view our circumstances as an opportunity to explore the world in the unique and novel way- there is a liberation from expectation that allows us to appreciate ourselves in a gentler and more kind way.
When we learn to accept and our shortcomings design our world around those rather than pretend they aren't there- we gain the unique position of combining compassion and creativity.
I look forward to learning and exploring together!
