Teaching Philosophy and Approach
My teaching philosophy comes from a combination of traditional methods that I learned in the course of my Music Education degree and my Suzuki training while receiving my graduate degree. I would call it a Suzuki based method with traditional elements. I do my best to teach my students with positivity to encourage their love of music as well as their love of the process of learning. While I may use specific techniques and/or methods, my ultimate goal is to help every student to become well-rounded musicians and well-rounded people.
