Philosphy:
I approach teaching by looking at the person as a whole beautiful being with everything they need already inside them and supporting them to bring out their unique style and expression by listening to what they have to say, sing, how they say it and sing it, and how they feel about their musical expression, aspirations, and goals. I'm looking for what makes their expression unique to them and brings them joy, and then develop that. I am a strong believer in being prepared for every class and daily practice at home. Both teacher and student working as a team. This journy is not about perfection or right or wrong, rather it is about enjoying yourself as you learn, grow, and develop your confidence and trust in yourself and your msical and performing skills while we have a great time.
