It is my personal philosophy that music should be accessible to everyone regardless of age, race, social status, or mental capacity. I consider it my responsibility to introduce students to music of all varieties and cultures so that no student's interests are ignored, and that no student's repertoire is stifled. I believe in an improvisation-based learning method so that music becomes a language rather than a task. My goal is to leave students with a well-rounded education in music so that they will be prepared for any musical endeavor they may wish to pursue.
