TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

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 

ANGIE’S GLOBAL MUSIC COLLABORATIONS….

Listen to a recent podcast episode in which The World Music Foundation talks with Angie about her pioneering work to preserve music history.

Mack is internationally known as a music educator, researcher and historian.  She has worked with many famous writers and playwrights, musicians, actors, producers and film directors from all over the world.  She introduced embracing the music history concept for Grafton’s downtown Paramount Plaza and served as the Chairperson for the International Walk of Fame Committee.  Her spearheaded efforts have substantially increased tourism revenue throughout Ozaukee County despite the fact that she has been a volunteer.  She is the one who pitched the ideas of having an annual blues festival in Grafton, a Paramount Walking Tour and a PBS “History Detectives” segment on Paramount Records..  She is famous for helping discover the unmarked grave of legendary blues icon, Arthur “Blind” Blake.  She was a contributor on both of Jack White’s Grammy award winning Paramount box sets.

“Mack has since worked tirelessly to preserve and commemorate the city’s musical legacy,” –Amanda Petrusich, American music journalist and author for the New York Times, The New Yorker, Pitchfork Media and Paste  (taken from her book,
