My Teaching Philosophy

I strive to pass on the values, skills, and knowledge that I possess so that my future students are successful in their academic journey.

Familliarity with the challenges that are posed by growing up in NYC is essential to my approach. I’m coming into the classroom not as an outsider, but as one of them. 

My classroom will be a vehicle in which I teach students how to problem solve and overcome obstacles. 

Instructional Technology

Well versed in modern approaches to education. I like to create additional resources to help my students in and outside the classroom. 

I can teach a standard curriculum based around orchestral and symphonic performance, music theory, and aural training.

I’m also a seasoned educator in guitar instruction, modern band, and music production (over six years experience).
