<p>Music is the most sacred means to communicate your inner being. My ideology is to teach dependable discipline, understandable theory, expert reading skills, alive listening, effective technique, and most of all a channel to communicate emotion. I believe every individual has a uniqueness that never ceases to amaze me in its potential. Learning the piano is a lifetime passion for both teacher and student. I absolutely love teaching and welcome your inquiry.</p>
