To nurture a love of music in my students, while teaching a comprehensive understanding of music theory, technique and expression. 

Creative Teaching: I do not use a one-size-fits-all approach to music education, and adapt lessons to the student's interests & learning needs. 
Dual Pricing: In offering both private & group lesson packages, I am able to offer different pricing tiers while still providing quality music instruction to every single one of my students.
Multiple Lesson formats: I am excited to offer online lessons for students out of my immediate area, and I use recorded video lessons to ensure that students can continue their progress, even when schedules get busy, or weather or sickness prevent them from attending their regular lesson time. 

I mix traditional teaching methods with exposure to a variety of genres and styles including classical, pop, jazz and improvisation. Students learn sight reading alongside lead sheets and composing. Using games and musical activities, we can reinforce music theory, and both ear and eye training. I focus on the joy of discovery and partner with students in their learning process, playing lots of duets to increase awareness of harmony and rhythm.

First and foremost, I love music, and want you to love it too. Experience has shown me that those who are able to take joy from making music are able to carry it into the rest of their lives. I work hard to find the music students will love, and teach them the skills they'll need to harness that gift.
