I believe that we all have music within us. As a music teacher, with over 35 years of experience working with students aged 4 to 90 from beginner to university level, I have found that with proper guidance every student is able to raise their musical literacy and technical facility. One of my missions as a mentor/guide teacher, is to harness a person’s natural musical abilities and to marry it with their aspirations to allow for personal growth and the inspiration to reach beyond expected musical goals.
