My Teaching Philosophy
Music is more than just a few chords and a melody. Music allows us to express ourselves and to be creative, music inspires us and most importantly, music is a proven and effective learning tool for young minds.

What makes you want to be a music teacher?
To watch a student master a difficult guitar chord or witness them successfully play a tricky scale is a wonderful experience to have as a teacher. To share their achievements makes the role of a teacher a very fortunate one.
