Teaching Philosophy

I believe everyone can make music. I also believe that music offers us so many paths to – as the saying goes – “choose your own adventure”, that the journey is genuinely up to you. I consider myself part expert, part guide, part cheerleader; more than anything, I am right there with you on the journey!
