Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is to focus on building well-rounded musicianship in my students, which enables them to fully enjoy the music, express themselves, and creates good self-esteem. I believe it is essential that students become fluent as soon as possible in reading in order to play with correct notes and rhythms from the first. Using this approach, students are much less likely to have to “unlearn” mistakes, a much more difficult process than learning correctly from the start. At the same time, they are much more likely to enjoy practicing on their own and often will start to play extra time for pure enjoyment. Let’s quest together for the Joy of Music!
