I feel that students should be helped to find music they can become passionate and motivated about. I work on technical skills with students as a tool to get them to obtain their own artistic freedom. It’s important to keep students interested and positive about what they are working on! I try to make it fun for people and I think my students walk away with a better understanding of the instrument after having a good time.
