Statement of Teaching Philosophy: "I believe a wholesome and holistic approach to education is the most beneficial for students and teachers alike. It is a teacher's obligation to communicate musical thoughts to students by relating new ideas to familiar concepts. On top of musical and technical proficiency, I strive for my students to learn how to develop a strong work ethic."
