Personal Statement

I basically work with the student in achieving their goals. My philosophy is to try to help them to the point where they can start to do things on their own and just need me for guidance. Jimmy Bruno is great at this. I'm not into teaching just for the money. I enjoy teaching and learning. I learned so much from my students because students come up with the strangest goals, questions, inquiries. Music is a life long commitment so why not have fun, no matter the style.
