TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

While I set high standards for students, I also believe in enriching their lives with the joy of music.  Adults always tell me "they wished their mother would have made them keep their lessons."  I regularly challenge myself to find ways to inspire students to want to continue lessons, so one day they too will be thankful to have had the opportunity to study piano.

I love to introduce a child or adult to the piano.  I begin with the basics and once ready try more chords, improvisation of popular, classical, or church music.  I love to see them grow and enjoy music as I do.  I love to work with children that play by ear.  Once they get the basics they really love to improvise and can play any kind of music very well.  I am a vocal coach and love to prepare singers for special performances.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

Students come to a new teacher with an endless variety of previous experiences. It is my responsibility as a teacher to analyze my students' needs on an Individual basis, and provide each one with an approach that will best suit his/her personal development. I have formed this attitude out of respect for my students, and a commitment to helping them achieve their goals.  Music is a highly flexible art form, and while there are basic criteria that all students must learn to understand its principles, each learner inevitably comes with a different frame of reference, and set of strengths and weaknesses. As a teacher, my job is to foster the strengths, and address all issues that need improvement.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

While having fun with music they can play, beginners will learn proper set-up, posture, note reading and musicality. Intermediate and advanced students should have access to proper techniques, fingerings,intonation, posture and stage presence so that the music is optimized for them and their audience. Physical conditioning and proper posture should be stressed so that one can play for their entire life without play related injury.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

Music is the Universal Language!  Everyone should be given the opportunity to learn the language at some point In their lives.  It is proven to increase mental capacity and intellect.  Through music and movement, children learn acceptable outlets to express feelings and relieve tension.  Music may also convey a specific mood through which children revel their feelings and emotions.  The way I teach the piano helps development of creativity.  The music creates an imaginary world and it is our job as teachers to encourage imagery and fantasy through music.  In doing so we will improve the child's self esteem and confidence.  Give the gift of music today!

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

Learning to read music and play the piano stimulates the child's brain as no other activity they have yet faced.  I encourage children to solve problems on their own with the information they have, in effect teaching them how to work on their own.  Children find this approach interesting and challenging, as well as beneficial to their school work habits.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

While I stress the necessary foundations of playing the piano - technique, theory and good practice habits - I always remember that the ultimate goal is to create a positive learning environment which allows the individual to develop to their highest level so the enjoyment of creating music is never lost. I do not want the love of music-making to disappear under the stress of overly ambitious goals. However, I will "push" the student to work to their best level to help them learn not only the craft of playing the piano, but the art of making music and creating memories at the keyboard.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

Patience, persistence & perseverance is the key to a successful student & teacher.  Learning the piano is a wonderful way to enhance concentration and develop multi-tasking skills. It also helps in everyday school studies. My students are taught efficient practice, learn at an early age to correct mistakes and they practice finger exercises to strengthen fingers to help them play at their best ability.  Technique is so important.  I teach theory, ear training, sight-reading and performance skills.  I believe the student can be a musician whether they are gifted or have to work at it.  I teach beginners to advanced students. Music is fun and helps the student become more creative and artistic in their own way.

Music is my life and I love to share my love for music with all my students.

I believe the study of music is an opportunity for students to aim high and realize goals through the joy of music. Each student has their specific needs and together we work to find that and strengthen it and gain the skills to express musical thoughts with beauty and confidence and can take these skills forward as a lifelong experience, in music and other areas of life. I've always believed that singing should be challenging but fun.
