My personal teaching philosophy is to teach students in a safe and respectful environment where they may be musically uninhibited, take risks, and contribute positively to the class. In this way, students are able to grow musically and enjoy their time in music class. My music classes immerse students in all kinds of tonalities and meters. Students will feel music through movement and learn to listen, create, and respond in a meaningful and musical manner.
