I have taught 25 years in public school, mostly in K-5, and recently have done a lot of work in the area of Personalized Learning, including Station Rotations and Project Based Learning. I discovered that these learning styles are very engaging for most all students as they discover music on their own.
My teaching style is very interactive, moving to hands on experience through movement, singing, playing instruments, notating and writing musical ideas. I love to see my students perform and have produced 13 Broadway Kids musicals at two different schools in addition to numerous Chorus and PTO performances.
