- Teaching since:
I love helping others progress and develop skills and a love for music. My history includes playing in church regularly since 2005. In addition to piano, I am also proficient at cello and the pipe organ. My training includes private instruction at college in piano and organ performance. Although I enjoy a variety of music, my favorite composer is Bach. I believe playing music is a vital part of experiencing and understanding music more than just listening to it. In today's fast-paced instant gratifying world, music performance teaches patience and discipline in a way few other things can. I attribute many of my successes in life in part to traits learned from music.
