Mickey's goal as a teacher is to equip the student with the technical skills, personal motivation, and creative tools to discover and develop their own voice on the instrument. She guides students towards reaching their own musical goals while also helping to influence, inspire, and expose students to new ideas, techniques, and styles. Students learn all the technical skills they need to express themselves on the instrument by developing a strong practice routine, setting goals, and applying skills creatively by playing along with songs, creating their own ideas based on examples, and "jamming" in lessons.
