PERSONAL TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
“Anyone can enjoy music.
Anyone can create music.
Anyone can enjoy creating music.”
Teaching students of all levels, talent, and ages, I’ve come to the conclusion that whoever has that urge to participate in the music making process, either as a performer, composer or an active listener, can enjoy creatively expressing themselves through making music. The word “playing” in English suggests a game, and learning music should be a fun, enjoyable experience. In private lessons I concentrate on technical abilities and the personal emotional connection to music with the same intensity.
Lessons are available in NYC and during summer in Croatia.
Online (Skype/Facebook/Facetime) lessons available as well!
