Private lessons will dramatically improve a student’s music skills by helping them advance at their own pace while targeting areas of needed improvement. Developing proper posture, good tone, and skilled technique will enable the student to improve with a high level of confidence. Some areas of concentration include music reading, rhythm, vibrato, theory, music listening, ear training, and stage presence. Parents and siblings are invited to attend lessons.

I believe that every child can learn, and that a teacher is responsible for understanding the unique needs of each student and working with them in a positive and nurturing way.
