Teaching Philosophy

My music teaching philosophy revolves around building strong foundations through knowledge while fostering cultural curiosity and improvisation. I believe in the transformative power of music, providing a gateway to a deeper understanding of history and cultural awareness. Music serves not only as an art form but as a tool for enhancing well-being and communication skills. Through this approach, I aim to inspire a lifelong appreciation for music and its profound impact on personal and cultural growth.
