Teaching is an essential component of my artistic practice. Most often than not, I feel that I have not fully embodied a skill or piece of knowledge until I am able to teach it to someone else. At the same time, teaching keeps me honest and creative as I have to continually revisit the repertoire and skills that I engage with as a performer. I am always eager to practice after teaching! Above all, I love experiencing the joy of seeing someone make progress towards their goals and eventually achieve them. It is an honor for me to be a catalysts for my students' successes.
I believe music can be a tool for self-discovery and the development of civic values. Beyond mere music, I convey to my students that respect, compassion, honesty, and perseverance are just as important for music making as they are for being an engaged member of a community.
