Mission Statement

“Music is a moral law.  It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” — Plato

What I Believe:

Music is an essential part of a well-rounded education. I believe in providing a quality musical education that is structured, inspiring, and enjoyable.  The teacher, the dedicated student, and the supportive parent create a powerful team that make music lessons a challenging and fulfilling experience.

A strong musical foundation is built through solid technique, aural skills, theory, and proper performance practices.

Every student has a performer inside of them.  I believe regular public performances are an essential part of music lessons.  Recitals are a great motivator for practice.  It helps them gain experience in front of a crowd and is a way to gain recognition for their many hours of hard work.  It also exposes the student to a wide variety of music and is a powerful way to show them how much their family values music.

Music lessons have benefits which extend beyond the practice room. Regular music practice teaches self-discipline, problem-solving skills, listening comprehension, goal-setting, and self-confidence.
