The Studio Mission is to nurture independent musicianship. To do so, I train students to be technically proficient, encourage them to believe in their abilities, foster individualism, guide them towards artistry and facilitate successful completion of their goals. 



Daily practice ensures continued growth. Students are given clear and specific instructions about how to practice during the week.  When there are questions, I am available via email or text.


Five Days per week of intense focused practice.

Two Days per week of playing through repertoire and recreational playing.

Unpreparedness for lessons may result in a shortened lesson.  
Habitual unpreparedness may result in loss of the student’s position in the studio for subsequent semesters.
