I believe in teaching the basic fundamentals of each instrument as a foundation for becoming a mature musician. This ultimately leads my students to becoming more well-rounded musicians who can handle any type of music, from classical to pop, from jazz to rock. Teaching fundamentals such as scales, arpeggios, and method studies are at the core of guiding my students into becoming professional musicians themselves. Above all, I work hard to make sure my students have FUN at my lessons while excelling on their instrument.
