This is my 10th year teaching, and everyday I fall more in love with my craft.  I have crafted my teaching to be completely engaging because it is my aesthetic belief that music education is able to reach every child on an experiential level.  This belief has allowed me to develop a highly motivational teaching style which includes continuous praise for each child, differentiated approaches, and multicultural materials. As a private teacher, I have led a successful private studio that has had student ranging in age from 4 all the way through college. Many of these have prepared for audition, Nyssma solo and state competitions, and solo performances, with much success.  Students have studied voice, piano, violin, and viola. I believe that every student is capable of learning music; all that is needed commitment, energy, and encouragement from the right teacher.  I believe I am that kind of teacher and look forward to teaching your child.
