About this pro
I love teaching people "how to fish".... Or in other words, I love giving people the understanding of music which allows them to be creative in their own musical endeavors. I feel that my job as a teacher is not to turn my students into "musical type writers", with no real understanding of the music they are reading and playing, but rather turn them into "Musical Authors" who are able to not only understand the language of music, but to also CREATE music with their understanding.
