"I love to teach because connecting with my students, and watching them overcome challenges as they develop the ability to express themselves musically is a really meaningful experience for us both. I like seeing them become stronger people as they develop more self-confidence and creative courage. Music is my life-long passion. I love learning and have seen repeatedly that cultivating the creative and artistic sensibilities involved in mastering an instrument is an invaluable experience that positively affects all aspects of a student's life"
