"My chief goal here at the Moores School of Music is to use the utmost care and clarity to pass on what I have learned to my students in the hope that, when they become professional musicians, they will do the same. I strive to encourage our keyboard students to understand and experience the intertwining relationship between solo performance, piano pedagogy, accompanying and chamber music, and am establishing a Keyboard Collaborative Arts Department which models this philosophy."
