Teaching Children, Adults or Both?
Teaching special needs children
About the teacher
It is my goal to provide a comfortable environment in which students are encouraged to think for themselves. I am interested in my students eventually becoming their greatest teacher, and I will work with my students on every detail to help them find greater ease on their instruments and reach their full potential as musicians. Some students will choose music as a main focus of their lives while others will treat it as a stimulating and constructive hobby. In either case it is possible to develop a discerning musical ear and the chops to go with it. My job is to facilitate that!

Teaching philosophy and approach to teaching
For beginners I like to use Suzuki Method or Essential Elements depending on the student’s age and preference. Fiddle and folk tunes are also accessible to beginners and they’re a lot of fun! I find the Carl Flesch scale system and the Ivan Galamian scale sequence particularly useful for building a good technical foundation, and I like to assign performance repertoire that both excites and challenges the student.
