Over the past thirteen years Sophia has developed a gentle and encouraging teaching style. Correct posture and technique are a priority. She applies both Suzuki and traditional methods. Training student’s to play by ear while also ensuring they have a solid understanding of music theory and note reading is most important. More is learned in each lesson than just music. Self-confidence, discipline, perseverance and patience are qualities also gained. Over all, she desires for her students to have a positive, fun, experience that will inspire them with the beauty of music.
