Philosophy

I believe music is essential in education, as it teaches self-discipline, improves mental function, and enriches the soul. As a voice teacher, I believe in teaching healthy technique and opening doors to many genres, and fostering creativity and self-expression through composition. I encourage students to participate in choral and dramatic groups to hone their craft, as well as to help push them past their self-imposed limitations. As a cello teacher, I encourage involvement in orchestras and chamber groups, as they teach teamwork and develop listening skills. Music is such an incredible form of personal expression, and I aspire to help my students find their true musical voices and share them with others.

I feel that performance is an integral part of music education and will make sure that my students are given ample opportunity to perform, whether it be at a recital, open mic night, as part of a choir or orchestra, or in a musical production to nurture each of my student's performance abilities.
