John Hancock


With the four D’s, I believe the impossible can be possible and anything can be achieved. My philosophy is that of a triangle; the relationship between the student, parent, and teacher. It must be understood that these three corners of the triangles must work in harmony to bring the best out of the student. I believe that every student has a chance to blossom regardless of their background. It is how we can bring out the hidden talent or nurture the existing talent in each individual.

I like to assess each student at the first meeting because I believe each student is unique and needs a “custom fit” regimen to aid their progress and goals. Everyone’s needs and goals are different and it takes a sharp eye to determine what the best path for the individual is. This all leads to the ultimate word of, patience. Through patience of the student until they understand the materials, through patience from the parent as to the development of their child, and from the patience from the teacher of the student’s natural pace will result in unparallelled success.

I also try to be a mentor in many aspects of a student’s life. Music is just one connection we have but everything is all related and will affect each other. In a supportive, but yet firm style of teaching, I believe I can unlock the talent and instill the proper discipline needed to sprout the budding, growing leaves of tomorrow’s future talents.

Since 2004

It is my pleasure to present annual concert series that I have started since 2004. Each year, each concert proves more successful through great effort from the teacher, student, and parent relationship. It is because of this special relationship that I am able to achieve goals whatever that may be. To some, it is to get into a pre-college program, or to a regional/state orchestra, or competitions, or simply to just get better. I am proud of all the students and feel they are winners in every aspect as long as they try their best and not give up. It takes more than just practicing and lessons. It requires first, motivation then dedication, then finally persistence and patience.
