My Musical Influences
I have been influenced by all of my teachers. My first teacher studied in Germany and gave me a very strong classical foundation. My last three teachers were graduates of the Julliard School. They have given me a great deal of musical knowledge. Their expertise in the field allows me to pass it on to my own students.
