I believe that everyone comes into the world with a natural capacity for music. As a music teacher of all ages, it is my goal to foster the musical ability in my students and to empower them to express themselves through music. I strive to nurture their inherent curiosity and to inspire them to be lifelong learners.  My holistic method focuses on developing a strong foundation of music literacy, skill, and technique while also encouraging creative expression through songwriting, improvisation, games, and performance. I value play, positive reinforcement, and a safe learning environment. People learn differently and I adjust my teaching style to meet their varied needs and interests. I draw on my experience as an outdoor educator and a lifetime of playing music to influence my teaching and understanding of experiential learning. As a teacher, I am constantly learning from my students and discovering how to best support them on their learning journey.
