I am a master teacher that understands the difficulties in tongue formation and air control. I am able to give students concrete exercises and concrete explanations to master better use of their air and tongue control. I have a very successful track record for improving students abilities when practicing these techniques. I also incorporate solfege and basic music theory into my lessons.
