Teaching PhilosophyAs a strings teacher, my objective is to foster an inclusive environment of collaboration and creativity, as well as to employ critical thinking, conscientiousness, and reflection to create unique musical experiences altogether. As a Peruvian California native, I have seen how music can bring people together, allowing barriers, whether they be cultural, socio-economic, or linguistic, to fall away.
