Message To You: I want all of my students to know that music is a gift. Learning an instrument is a great talent to be shared, and it can be frustrating at times, but in the end it is well worth the hard work. I promise to make the learning process fun while still encouraging you to play to the best of your abilities. So on that note, I look forward to making beautiful music with all of you!
