Teacher  

Music is a universal language that is understood by anyone of any age or ability. Through music, people can connect, express themselves, and transcend the physical plane. I work to create an environment where my students are safe and open to a multi-sensory experience. My aim is to provide my students with a lifelong love of music and appreciation of the skills developed from hard work and discipline while augmenting their innate musicianship, creating our next generation of musicians.
