Teaching Philosophy: I enjoy working with people of all ages to help them explore their inner landscape, to arouse their curiosity and passions and to awaken their desire to play and create. I will provide the structure, materials and necessary skills to help participants find success and satisfaction in their creative expressions.

Teaching Philosophy: My teaching philosophy is rooted in a belief that we engage with others when we feel as though we are respected, which drives my approach to creating community through artistic collaboration. I meet each student where they are, helping them to find ways in which to embark on a creative exploration with their settings. During the work, I pay special attention to cues from participants who are having trouble hearing, communicating, or participating in activities and enlist their help to make suitable accommodations. Together as an ensemble, we hold a patient, loving space for the growth and exploration of each individual artist.
