I believe that all students of any age are able to learn and appreciate wonderful musical compositions ranging from Bach to current living composers. My goal is to develop the student's creative mind, ears, and fingers to the best of their ability so that the student will enjoy all different types of music and eventually allow the student to be independent learners and musicians. Any type of learning is a process and everyone will reach their goal by persevering, and practicing to their full potential. One does not have to perform repertoire in front of an audience to reap the benefits of a creative musical work. The innate desire to study music will reward us all with a more fulfilling life which will be communicated to future generations.
