Teaching Philosophy

Learning to play a musical instrument is an opportunity to engage the intellect while discovering your creative spirit. As a teacher, I believe in providing a learning environment that is sensitive to the goals and needs of each student. This approach gives the student the opportunity to accept the challenges, explore artistic endeavors, and be successful at his or her own pace.- Laura York
