Teaching Philosophy

A teacher should be thought of as a navigator who uses their knowledge, experience and expertise to maximize the students potential and keep them on track to reach their musical goals in the most efficient manner possible. In essence my role as a teacher is to challenge you to be the best that you can be and in turn aid you in your quest to meet that challenge through direction, encouragement and evaluation. My value as a teacher ultimately lies in the knowledge and experience I have accrued in travelling the very road upon which you are setting out on and in helping countless others to make that same journey.
