    My teaching philosophy
    Music is essential in our daily lives. Without music, life would be a drag. My mission is to enlighten my students of the beauty, excitement and enduring quality of the great classical composers through my teaching and performing career. Whether my student aspires to be a professional pianist or to play as a hobby, I seek to inspire excitement, happiness, and a desire to succeed in all of my lessons. A student’s success is the teacher’s success!
     
    Each student's personality is different in their own unique way so I will always teach my students accordingly to suit their needs as best as possible. Fun and seriousness are always well-balanced during our lessons! My students will have the proper instruction during my lessons so that he or she can be independent in their practicing before the next lesson or performance. I have the knowledge to cultivate my student's technique, musicality, and musical knowledge through the education I have received and with the great teachers I have worked with.
