Teaching Philosophy

Teaching is a wonderful, exciting and engaging discipline. Our musical talent is a gift and each of us brings to our music a very different background, personal experiences, strengths and technical challenges. We are all unified by our love for human artistic creativity, the personal devotion that study and performance demands from ourselves, and the power of music communication that comes to us from great composers working within their individual styles and time periods. Our job as piano teachers is to facilitate and support each person's pursuit of these lofty ideals and to pass on the performance practices and creative musical heritage of our great piano art tradition.
