Teaching has presented many beautiful opportunities to explore all types of learning needs and interests. Every student presents different needs and abilities, and I love discovering how to appropriately challenge and inspire each individual through a mixture of clear verbal instruction and physical and aural demonstration.
Together, we continually explore and add to our knowledge of music’s foundation and background which encourages all to interpret information creatively and independently, rather than to simply follow instructions with no true understanding. I want to hear your interpretation and your voice in the music!
Overall, my main desire is to support and balance educational needs and enjoyment. Lessons and classes present a variety of challenges both mentally and physically, but I strive to keep the level of difficulty appropriate while providing encouragement with ample humor and laughter. Especially laughter. We tend to laugh a lot.
