Learn your instrument and have fun doing it

My Philosophy

I believe you will enjoy studying music with me.    

RULE #1: We have fun!  

RULE #2: We move toward your goals. 

There are some basic skills each player should acquire, but beyond that, let’s make your music experience more rewarding, more satisfying!    

There are so many effective tools for music training!
