Growing up, my music teachers have been fundamental to my development not only in terms of musical skill but also in becoming a well-rounded individual. I want to help my students build the necessary skills to be confident in their musical capabilities and to carry that confidence into all other areas of their lives. I aim to help them cultivate the necessary tools to tackle any issue – be it musical or otherwise! Determination, focus, technique, and fun are my priorities when teaching students
