Over 10 years of combined teaching (private and public) in music education with students of all ages and various backgrounds. From piano lessons, to recorder, ukulele, and hand bells all the way to basic composition, theory, history and vocal methods; I am passionate about sharing the gift of music with the world by creating user-friendly, accessible curriculum.
My personal teaching style is innovative, unorthodox, and specific to the learning level of groups and individual students. It ranges anywhere from self-led assignments, delegated instruction with peer educators, teacher-driven lectures, and group assignments all the way to one-on-one formative assessments with instruction and multiple examples.
