Hello there! Are you ready to free the music within? I am a full-time elementary school teacher with a bachelor's degree in music and a master's degree in education. My extensive training and experience in music and education allow me to perfectly tailor every lesson to each student's specific needs, goals, and interests. I specialize in allowing your style and personality to shine through your music, so that lessons are not only about achieving proficiency on your instrument, but about self-expression and personal growth!
