My Philosophy

 

Outside of my scoring work, I am passionate about sharing my experience and skills with a new generation of musicians. As a private teacher, I am committed to working together with students of all ages and skill levels to help them achieve their goals, whether they want to be hobby musicians or go pro. I believe music is intrinsic to our humanity, and my teaching philosophy is based ultimately on the joy that comes from taking pride in one's hard work and dedication to their craft.

My joy of vocal performance extends to all genres, and I am happy to work with my students in a variety of styles.

Likewise, through composition and songwriting lessons, my goal is to help students find and harness their creativity and use it to effectively write the music they want to write. I am trained in classical composition techniques as well as jazz, film scoring, and songwriting, and believe a well-rounded education is the key to unlocking your writing potential.

Studio Policies

Payment is due no later than the first lesson of the month for the entirety of the month's lessons. Students will receive invoices via Paypal where payments can be made.

 

Cancellation Policy

 Lessons cancelled with at least 24 hours notice will be rescheduled; any lessons cancelled without 24 hours notice will not be rescheduled or refunded. No refund will be given for absences or tardiness. Students who are late are entitled to any amount of time remaining in their lesson.

Teacher Missed Lessons

 If I have to miss or reschedule a lesson, I will reschedule it at the student's convenience. If the lesson cannot be made-up/rescheduled, it will be credited toward the next month's bill.

 

Practice

All musicians can only improve with practice-- young children usually need some structured practice time guided by their parents. Please ensure your young musician is practicing in between lessons, as well as a space where they feel safe and free to do so. Regular practice is essential to making progress!

 

Communication

I value an open communication between myself, students, and parents. I'm committed to keeping parents on the same page as far as lesson progress and goals go. Please don't hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns. Molding a young person into a musician and artist is a team effort!
