Artist Statement
My objective as a teacher is to inspire students to think on their own in order to discover their potential as artists and individuals. I introduce the tools necessary for building a solid foundation and then demonstrate how to implement and continually improve these tools. I serve as a guide to the process of performance education, which requires from its students talent, intellect, desire and commitment. Students under my tutelage who demonstrate initiative, self-motivation, and dedication earn superior evaluations and my respect. Mutual respect helps create an environment, classroom or studio, which encourages open discussion in a professional, informative, and productive manner.
