Personal Statement
 
My first goal is to help my students appreciate and love beautiful music and to learn to play artistically. Secondly,
and just as important, is to convey the pleasure of sharing music to bless others.

Laying a solid technical foundation, learning to practice efficiently, and acquiring good posture and hand positions are
indispensable, I believe, for proper development. While
using traditional etudes such as Kreutzer, Sevcik, Mazas, Dont, and Paganini, I always assign pieces appropriate to the
student's ability. Technique and musical sensitivity must converge at some point; my feeling is the sooner, the better.

As a Christian, I believe music is a wonderful gift from God
and should be used to glorify Him and to inspire and bless
others.
