From the teacher...
I encourage a positive teaching and learning environment in my studio in many ways but particularly by adapting the material being taught to teach individual student, by helping my students set their own goals and by inspiring my students to practice through games and fun assignments.
I believe that each student learns things in a unique manner and so I adapt the material I cover to best suit their needs. I use many different resources to teach and my collection is constantly growing. All my students are taught the same musical concepts but I find creative ways to help each of them understand; some use worksheets, others games, others need me to demonstrate, others like to research on their own. I convey the information to each of them in whatever manner is best for them.
I help my students to set their own goals rather than force them to do what I want. I ask my students what they would like to learn during the year and I give them suggestions as to what is best for them. Ultimately, though, it is the student and their family who defines what main areas they are interested in studying.
I love working with all ages. Each age group learns at a different pace and in a different manner so I enjoy learning the best ways to encourage musical growth for all ages.
