As an teacher, I believe that anyone, at any age or ability can learn to play an instrument, and in doing so lead a more rewarding life. I teach to develop independence, confidence, and self discovery in my students, while maintaining a strong foundation in technical ability and knowledge of the instrument. I encourage my students to be strong thinkers, meticulous problem solvers, and fearless explorers.
I hold certifications in the Suzuki method and well as Alice Kanack's CAD method, and draw largely on movement based learning. I have studied pedagogy under Christiane Pors and Richard Fuchs (a student of the pedagogue Paul Rolland).
