“I believe the study of music offers a platform that benefits our existence and participation in the world around us. The skills involved in learning the piano include: physical and mental coordination, spatial awareness, analytical and critical thinking, listening, attention to detail, emotional expression and release, self-control, and an appreciation for patience and goal achievement. I strive to teach my students with these important disciplines in mind so they can learn and be creative in the world around them.”
