My Teaching Philosophy: 
To inspire the individual to discover and understand their strengths and to utilize them to their fullest potential; to obtain enough wisdom to approach their 'weaknesses' not as roadblocks, rather, as opportunities for growth. Objectivity and embodied cognition play a major role in my approach, allowing the individual to attain high levels of achievement.

Improvisation is an important component to music making; it is incorporated into all types of lessons I offer, as it provides a clearer understanding of the layers and intricacies of written composition. Some of the subjects I like to address while teaching improvisation include, but are not limited to: theory, ear training, rhythm, and writing and reading from lead sheets.
