I have nearly a decade worth of private teaching instruction in piano and singing, 6 years of general music instruction with preK-8th classroom teaching, and 5 years of choral music teaching.
I am a hands on teacher. I want my students to learn by doing, not by me talking. We play, we create, and we learn music through largely kinesthetic methods. I started making my own manipulatives when I started teaching as I had no budget, and have continued to do so now as my students love them!
