Teaching at Longy affords me the opportunity to nurture what is creative and unique in each student while developing the skill sets to realize their goals. I also aim to cultivate curiosity and encourage rigorous habits for lifelong learning – to develop independent musical voices backed with enough knowledge and variety of experience to tackle whatever opportunities present themselves.
