From Our Website
We all recognize the incredible benefits of studying music. It's such a rich, ever-present part of our lives, it's no wonder our good taste drives us and our children to want to make good music. It is a great privilege to play well, and one that must be earned by working hard, loving music and never giving up. I enjoy working with families who appreciate enhancing their childrens' educational experiences in a fun, creative, encouraging environment, while establishing a solid basis for a lifetime of music-making in any capacity.
