I think human beings are incredible but too many people don't know how wonderful they are! As a music teacher, I want to show my students that they are smarter than they think. If you too are inspired by music and are keen to learn to read it, I'm SO glad you are here. I love showing people how to think and practice their way to achieving their goals and enjoying the fruits of their skills. I always put a focus on the ear, because music is first and foremost about sound. I also love to reveal patterns that make the learning so much quicker and effective. The whole process of working to get better, finally getting there, and having new ways to enjoy music are what make it so fun!
