Music is an expression of many emotions and moments. It is a universal language that can be taught and understood no matter what the individual’s background may be. There is always a way to express who you are and find your voice. In a world with such high expectations and stressors, I believe that a passionate, honest, and positive teaching style is essential to helping a student succeed.
In order to learn and improve one must have a structured daily regimen that can be varied so the student can sustain focus over time. This, in turn, will create a solid foundation that will ingrain good habits and encourage future growth. Students who neglect their basic fundamentals (control over scales, pitch, and rhythm) tend to have difficulty expressing their musical voice.
Every person is different and unique, each individual has their own journey to take in finding who they are. It is my goal to provide my students with the information and guidance they need along their journey to allow their musical voice to become fully expressed through their instrument.
