Teaching Philosophy

As a music educator, I strive to share my passion for music with future generations and to help them develop not only as musicians but as unique members of society. I focus on approaching each student with attention to their interests, goals and personal learning style. I believe in using a teaching style that is best for the student to both feel comfortable but also challenged. My teaching goals include attention to fundamentals, making connections, and encouraging creativity and curiosity. I believe everyone has an ability to include the arts in their lives and I strive to help cultivate an appreciation for music in students of all ages. Musical study in all ages can be a great outlet for feelings, creativity and mental growth.

Successful musical instruction encompasses a strong foundation in music theory, scales, and technical facility as well as an understanding of how music is communicated through creativity, performance, and personal and societal connections. Students will study a combination of short studies or etudes, scales, theory assignments and repertoire for study or performance. Members of the studio will also have the opportunity to learn and play together in a group setting once a month as a way to share their talents and grow as a community which is an integral part of music education. Students will have multiple opportunities to grow and perform as a studio and within the community. Students are also highly encouraged to perform for family and parents are welcome to attend a lesson in support of their child's music education and growth.
