Teaching Philosophy

Piano lessons should ignite and nurture students’ innate passion for music. I believe this is best accomplished through treating each student as the individual they are. This means no two lessons look alike for me– students learn similar concepts, but in a way that is catered to their personalities, interests, strengths, and learning styles. I strive to guide each musician in the most natural way possible.

No matter the path a student takes beyond their time with me, they should gain the skillset needed to have a musical future. I want each lesson to be a positive experience for the student, and ideally, to impact them beyond our weekly meetings.
