I love music. I love playing and teaching music. My mission in teaching piano is to instill in my students a lifelong love for music. I want students to be curious and driven to learn as much as they can about music.

I believe everyone has the potential to learn music and the right to experience music through performance, listening to and creating music.

I recognize that individuals have different strengths and weaknesses as well as different likes and dislikes concerning music. Therefore, as much as possible, I try to make my teaching as individual as my students. I am constantly trying new ideas and honing my skills as a teacher.

Finally, although I recognize that we are all different, I have high expectations of all my students, whether they want to be contest winners or just play for fun. Students do not need to be patronized. They need to be guided to become the best they can be.

Although I mainly use traditional methods and the classics to teach, I have often selected materials from popular, jazz, Broadway and other musical styles, depending on my students’ needs and preferences and the availability of materials to address those needs.
