Teaching Principles and Strategies
Foster an interdependent studio where each student is mentored in their talents, dreams and goals at a pace commensurate with their level and rate of development.
Inspire by example by continuing to grow and develop musically, professionally and personally.
Build technical and musical skills for unconscious competence and integrated musicianship.
Extend the position of students as mere consumers of music to that of being able to analyze how music works, and then as inventors, apply theory creatively in interpreting, composing and improvising music.
Maintain momentum through scheduling lesson content and events that provide direction, purpose and hope for each student.
Collaborate with colleagues and other music professionals for the benefit of student development.
Interact with clientele in between lessons through e-mail and various social media platforms.
