Not all students learn the same way, and I believe that an individualized approach to each student is necessary. I seek to create a learning environment where students can ask questions, make mistakes and overcome obstacles. Through a tailored curriculum of studies, etudes and repertoire, musicianship and technical ability are strengthened and developed. By reinforcing solid fundamentals and good practice habits, students will gain the confidence to express themselves convincingly through music.
As a trumpet studio, I believe that camaraderie is extremely important. I seek to promote a positive, encouraging environment where all students feel comfortable learning. The musical world is a small world, and I believe that students must treat their colleagues with respect, as they are building relationships that will last a lifetime.
