My teaching philosophy is that all students are unique and should be provided with a stimulating educational environment where they will receive endless support and encouragement to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially.
Music is a universal language and it is my desire to create the path to help students discover its innate beauty. I believe my role as a music teacher does not suffice by teaching from the books but also to discover the full potential of every student and using my expertise to further nurture their glistening ideas.
