"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." -William Arthur Ward
I believe that it is essential for people to express themselves through music.
Everyone has musical ability, and it is my job to help them discover it.
My focus is on general musicianship and enjoyment. To enhance musical learning, I incoroporate other activities, such as drumming, singing, movement, and games, depending on the needs, age, and interests of the student. Music is dynamic! Let's get creative!
In addition to teaching proper instrumental technique, I teach music reading, improvisation, sight reading, composition, transposition, and accompaniment skills. I also teach various styles, including blues, eastern European, klezmer, and gypsy music!
