Teaching Philosophy
I enjoy teaching piano to students of all ages and levels, and my goal is to provide quality music instruction while also making the experience enjoyable and rewarding. I believe every person has musical ability, and I strive to help students develop their musical skills to their fullest potential. My special interests include studying how the brain processes music, and teaching adult learners.
