Personal Statement

I have been teaching instrumental music privately for about 15 years and I have been teaching music in the classroom for about 7 years. There is no unique way to teach. Not all students respond to the same method. I have been very successful over the years molding a teaching style to fit each individual student. In addition to this, I feel the development of the ear is extremely important. Likewise, a clear understanding of the harmonic underpinning of music is essential to learning any instrument or style of music–not enough emphasis is placed on this. If you are an aspiring student on classical guitar, mandolin or lute, please feel free to contact me about setting up an initial lesson.
