I've been a professional musician/educator for over 15 + years. I am an multi- instrumentalist which is a great benefit when studying with me. I bring to the table a broad world view and different perspectives of music pedagogy that I have been fortunate to attain throughout my music career and education. There is more than one way to attain a musical goal and I always work on giving different ways to attain such goals until one connects with student. I am a "real world" application type of teacher.
