TEACHING STYLE

I strive to help my students reach their musical goals, whatever they may be. Learning an instrument is a lot of work, but it can be an enjoyable experience for both the student and teacher. After teaching for 37 years I have found and developed methods to give students what they need for success while teaching good technique.
