My approach to teaching comes from years of working with students in very diverse teaching settings. I always customize my approach around the specific needs of the student, and his/her level of musicianship, skills, strengths and weaknesses. At the same time, though, I make sure that the student is given a valuable amount of information and material to work on. Also, and very importantly, I want to make the process of learning enjoyable and stimulating for the student, since music should always remain something we enjoy doing, although it's not supposed to be easy.

- I have extensive teaching experience, in a range that goes from teaching privately and in private schools to giving lectures at Universities and Master-classes in the US, Europe and Asia. I have been working with students of all ages and feel very comfortable working with kids. As a performer, I have extensive experience performing both domestically and internationally in many different styles and settings. My debut cd 'the light and other things' (Creative Nation Music) was released last year to critical acclaim and I have an upcoming release (scheduled for the end of 2009/beginning of 2010) on the prestigious Swiss label Hat Hut - hatOLOGY.
