Thank you for your interest in my teaching page!
My personal teaching philosophy is that with diligence and proper, patient instruction, any student will be able to make beautiful music on the classical guitar.
Initially every student needs a strong grounding in the technical and musical fundamentals that with time and experience form the foundation of their musicianship.
As they develop a personal voice on the instrument, my goal is to guide their learning using universal aspects of musical interpretation. This is key in balancing what is written in the musical score, the composer’s intentions, and the intentions of the performer.
I am always refining the ways to motivate and challenge my students at their own pace and tailored to their individual learning style. Not only will they learn musically applicable skills but also how to study effectively, present themselves well, and eventually perform in high pressure situations.
Finally, I view the role of teacher as one with immense responsibility. At any stage of musical study, cultivating the student’s lifelong love of music is paramount. The trust a student invests in me to guide their musical studies is one I am incredibly grateful for and hold in the highest regard.
