TEACHING EXPERIENCE

MY TEACHING STYLE

Even though we have large ensembles (100+ students!), I make it a point to create autonomous thinkers. Students gain independence in practice by breaking down musical elements and learning step-by-step. Together we make personal and group goals and assess each other throughout the year. Most importantly, we get the chance to create a beautiful performance at the end of each unit. My students also love the fact that this is the only class in which they receive an "A" for making "noise!"
