TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

Instrumental playing should benefit a student beyond the realm of music. It should be a medium of constant self-reflection and self-discovery, thereby developing physical and mental resilience in the students to face challenges on and off stage. Music should allow students to “learn to learn”, cultivating an analytical mindset towards different aspects of life, and fostering adaptability towards societal systems and instilling mindfulness towards emotional expression.
