"I strongly believe in the importance of music in the development of cognitive abilities as well as emotional, physical and spiritual growth. My teaching philosophy is based on finding the better person in oneself with the help of music. I focus on playing the music, not the instrument! Teaching to the unique characteristics of each student, I draw on my own diverse learning experiences from four countries to help them play skilfully, meaningfully and artistically."
