TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm currently teaching in a leading school in Dubai while researching newer pedagogical methods. I use Kodaly, Dalcroze and Gordon's Music Learning Theory in my classroom.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I've been teaching for the last decade or so. What gets me excited in music education is pedagogy and the science of how students (especially toddlers) learn music. I'm also a composer, producer and run a home studio with projects geared towards kids. I've got a couple of exciting projects going on.... I'm writing a book of original music that uses principles of Music Learning Theory. This is so that teachers can use progressive compositions to get their students to understand music and perform it well. I'm composing an album for pre-school students that focuses on musicality rather than words or rhythms. I'm also a composer and playwright. Hopefully one of these days you'll catch my work on bandcamp or YouTube.
