I strongly believe in the immense capacity of each individual to learn music, the empowerment of individuals when developing internal motivation and deep curiosity about sound and music, and the body-mind connection that produces music. Learning music is about discovery, creativity, and passion. As a teacher, I look forward to exploring and developing the musical talents of the Brookline Music School community.
