Teaching Philosophy

I would like my students to become not only enthusiastic and educated music lovers, but also to be able to express themselves through music, and the art of piano playing. The emphasis of my teaching is on building proper technique and thorough musicianship, while providing each student with the necessary knowledge of music theory to explore their individual creative abilities. All of these gradually will develop the fundamental understanding and mastery of each composition learned and performed. Lessons are designed to meet the specific needs and goals of each student.
