Teaching Philosophy

I believe that music is one of the most powerful and unifying forces in our world, not only to connect people and communities, but to connect learners of music with themselves—to realize their own incredible creativity and potential. As a teacher, I seek to guide students of all ages and levels to build a well-rounded and refined piano and musical training, rooted in an approach that fosters building skills for effective and independent learning, and reaching the highest level of excellence for each student, no matter their goals or purpose for piano studies. I also aim to nurture the student’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being in reaching high artistic achievement through an approach centering kindness, compassion, and meeting every student where they are at in their musical journeys. 

My teaching curricula aims to develop well-rounded pianists and musicians through technical development and training, building aural, reading and sightreading skills, investigating robust and comprehensive repertoire, and study of music theory and music history. This is achieved through studying a “core” curriculum of well-respected method books and standard solo repertoire, and opportunities to participate in events such as studio recitals, exams, and competitions.

I seek to train creative, empathetic and excellent musicians with the tools and motivation to make music for a lifetime. Creating constructive and inspiring experiences for students is at the core of my teaching philosophy.
