Personal Statement
I believe every child can learn to play a musical instrument and succeed when given the proper and environment for learning.

My lessons are enthusiastic, positive, and very thorough. I encourage all of my students, regardless of age or level to practice consistently and try their best.
I have experience teaching small children as young as three-adult, beginner-advanced.

I am a very dedicated teacher and active performer. I hold my Masters degree in music performance and I am certified to teach Suzuki and traditional methods. I use both methods, emphasizing left and right hand technique, and music theory. I also perform regularly throughout the US. I have experience teaching students solo, chamber, and orchestral repertoire.

Please contact me for more information regarding my private lesson schedule, free lesson observations or for group classes currently offered.
CV/Resume and References can be available upon request.
