A graduate of Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA.

I would describe my teaching style as 'flexible.' I don't believe that there's a one-size-fits-all teaching method; everyone learns differently and it's my job to determine the best way to teach each of my students. I focus on finding music that my students will like, and picking topics and approaches that they'll find naturally interesting. When we're learning a new concept or theory, I incorporate songs that use those new ideas so that my students can learn to apply them in a real situation.
Curriculum-wise, I use a wide variety of different books and handouts, plus some original material. I customize it for each student, based on their interests and skill level.
