“I believe in a rounded approach to music education that includes technique and note reading, but also a focus on creativity, improvisation, and music appreciation. I believe every student can create their own unique musical identity and that exposure to different musical ideas is the path to unlock it. While I think a strong focus on basic to advanced technique is monumentally important, I also think it’s important for students to be involved with the creative aspect of music and encourage them to create and share ideas.”
