studio, instructor for students ages 4 - to
adults. The study of music has been an
integral part of a well rounded education
for thousands of years. In my opinion
teaching music is the most wonderful career,
especially if it becomes an essential part
of the student's life. I believe this is the
greatest reward for a teacher. I enjoy
working with both children and adults and
believe that any student whether a child or
adult, can gain great benefits and enjoyment
through music. It' s a gift to treasure all
I try to incorporate the study of music into
the student's own lifestyle in a natural way
so as not to make it alien to his everyday
life and the things that are enjoyable and
necessary to him. However, together with
this attitude I try to teach a love for
work. I teach my students that music is
something they can express their feeling
with and enjoy, but at the same time I'd
like them to understand that they need to
work to feel a sense of accomplishment.
"Love and study the great art of music.
It will open a whole new world of feelings,
needs and thoughts, and will elevate you
spiritually. You will see life in different
shaded and colors."
