About my philosophy of teaching
I love what I do. I have the privilege of teaching students to love music, to learn how to feel through a piece of music and to be changed by the discipline of this art. Teaching is my gift and my passion and I feel a high degree of responsibility to my parents who choose me to influence their children in the area of piano study. To that end, I expect students to work hard, to think, to participate with me in the teaching/learning process. I’m not really a fan of “I don’t know” answers. Engage. Listen. Agree and disagree and let’s work together to make music fun and interesting. For me personally, I always want to be better at my craft, at my own playing and practicing, and I expect to foster that desire in a student.
