"I passionately believe that every student can discover music that speaks to them and inspires them to stretch and grow." "Whenever I see that a student has 'checked out' and is not engaged with their piano studies, I am inspired to discover the one thing that can reignite their interest, whether it's Chopin, Miles Davis, or video game theme songs. As soon as my students reconnect with the spark of their own creativity, I am instantly elated and reminded why I love to teach."
