Teaching Experience & Philosophy:
Before taking my current position as a church Music Director in Brooklyn, I was formerly the trumpet instructor with the Children's Orchestra Society in Manhasset, Long Island. In recent years, I've expanded my teaching to include vocalists, choirs and the training of organists. This broader perspective on music-making benefits all my students.
I believe that studying music expands one's mind in many valuable ways, and that private lessons help a student enhance his or her communicative skills, concentration, creativity, problem-solving, awareness, empathy, and understanding. Music practice can be a valuable form of meditation - a time of focused concentration - that students of all ages will find most welcome and valuable.
