Teaching Philosophy

Learning music involves multi-sensory development. One can read, listen, dance, sing and express feelings through music. Childhood music learning has been shown to benefit intellectual, social and cognitive development. As a music educator, my goal is to maximize the learning potential of a child. I emphasize the use of age-tailored methods to promote creativity, enjoyment and confidence in a child's music experience. I envision my concepts extended beyond class with support from the parents, and my students can build a strong foundation for life-long music learning.
