"My teaching style is inspired by the world around us, focusing on both the cultural context and musical content. In the liberal arts, we draw connections from a wide range of sources, and I seek to help my students discover and examine the impact of those connections. As a former instrumentalist, I have the tools to communicate the importance of an historical perspective on performance."
"The most important product of my classes is not a student with all the answers; instead, I try to foster a learning environment in which they discover how to think about those answers. Fostering inspiration is the only guarantee that my students will continue learning throughout their career at Berklee and the rest of their lives. No matter their major, or principal instrument, every Berklee student is concerned with the creative process. This fact alone accounts for the unique study body here at Berklee."
