What is your teaching philosophy?

I’m a NYC-based musician, composer, and teacher. I graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2023 with a bachelor’s degree in Jazz Composition. My belief is that music is an art form that has the potential to enrich the lives of students in numerous ways. In all of my teaching, I strive to create a nurturing atmosphere that inspires a lifelong love for music.

In your opinion, what is the right way to teach and what do you do in your lessons that makes you a good teacher?

I make sure to customize my lessons to the needs of the student. I’m able to explain something in a variety of different ways so that it clicks for the student.. I fully believe that any student is capable of playing and understanding anything they want, as long as they have a teacher that understands how they learn. I urge my students to try to always be discovering new music they like – and then learning and playing it. This creates a path of progression on the instrument that is both highly efficient and also extremely fun and fulfilling for the student.
