My Goals

My goal is to help people achieve their musical goals. I love embracing the fact that people need to enjoy something in order to excel in it. I find that if a student is not enjoying music lessons, they feel no need to practice or improve their skills. It is for this reason that I always use the student's taste, likes and dislikes to dictate how and what I teach them. After all, you know what you want, I am just a vessel to help you achieve your goals.
