With over 20 years as a musician, and 15 years of working with youth both inside the classroom and at camp, there is no end to what I can still learn. Here's hoping we can learn together.
My teaching style changes, but I strongly believe in a hands (or voices)- on learning style and a student-led, positive classroom. I am a talker, but I try to limit my lectures to around 10 minutes. Heavy on activities, my room is a place where my students should feel safe and supported in their learning without lowering expectations. Which are high. :)
