TEACHING STYLE

Music is an important human endeavor that provides an opportunity for expression, skill development, and collaboration in the aesthetics for all people. Each individual is treated with respect and caring as we work together in this art form. My studio theme is quite simply this: Discover the power & beauty of music. Develop skills for excellence. Discipline the mind for life. ©
