My ultimate goal as a teacher is to foster a lifetime of love for music in each student and to enjoy the process of learning. Lessons should be something that each person looks forward to. (Please communicate with me if they do not). I try to tailor each lesson to the individual according to their learning style, learning speed, family dynamics and level of interest. I use a “student-led” approach; meaning that I encourage each student to participate in the learning process through utilizing their ideas and things that interest them musically and otherwise. I place a strong emphasis on innovative thought, individual thought and the creative process. I also like to incorporate multi-disciplinary learning. I believe that the process of learning music should be enjoyable. Therefore, I do not believe in forcing youth to perform or compete musically. I provide a safe environment where students are encouraged to take musical risks, make mistakes and are challenged to grow at their own pace and level creatively. TESTIMONIALS
