Educational Philosophy

My goal as a music educator is to instill a sense of music appreciation while teaching students the technical and fundamental components of music, so that each student can realize their own artistic potential. Music is truly a gift, and through my own education and love of music, I intend to inspire my students and teach them the joy of learning it.
