It is my goal to ensure complete music literacy, and to provide quality, advanced music instruction to those students striving for excellence in education, all while meeting the beginners where they are in a stress free and fun way!
I prefer all regular students have a good method book for their instrument, although I will work with students that only need short term help as well. I will help anyone in need of learning how to read music!
