I love connecting with students through the joy of playing and making music with others. I am a firm believer in the benefits of music education which not only include skill in the art of music, but also the development of essential life habits and attitudes such as confidence, self-esteem and delayed gratification. As music students grow, they take music with them wherever they go and deepen their social connections to other people and the community at large.

I became interested in the Suzuki Method when my daughters participated in a local Suzuki program. I witnessed firsthand the benefits and effectiveness of the Suzuki method and decided to incorporate it into my teaching approach by completing the Suzuki Pedagogy Certification at DU.
