TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

A spirit of play in the lesson engages the attention & energy of the student, promoting deeper learning. The degree of student participation predicts the degree of musical absorption and application. There is purpose and direction in the lesson, lots of hard work and a blurring between "work" and "fun." I introduce possibilities and encourage initiative, self-direction, exploration and creativity. Music is a joy. Music is universal. Music is a language and a means of full expression. My teaching is geared to match the student's learning style, and as such, the approach taken is flexible and varied according to the individual, but a strong emphasis is on learning to read music well and knowledge of chords.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

I love teaching children to read music, beginning with a few landmarks and showing them how to use intervals to work out from there.  I include a little bit of music theory in each lesson.  My goal is that they would be able to pick up any piece of music that interests them and read it on their own.  My lessons are a half-hour each, and for best results the students should plan to practice nearly every day on their own at home, generally playing each assigned song about 4 times a day.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

Music is joy, beauty, and a language that transcends words. The study of music helps one learn discipline and responsibility, gain pride in accomplishment, become more analytical, and express creativity. My goal during the lesson is to encourage each student to reach his or her full musical potential through systematic study with positive reinforcement. A life filled with music is infinitely richer, by far.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

A complete education includes Music and Art. The fast pace of today makes it hard to practice for as long as we'd like, however proper practice takes less time and better results. Most teachers assume students know how to practice, they don't! Parents have to see how a student is supposed to practice. If you have to ask the teacher how is my child doing, you're in the wrong place.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

I believe that if students are enjoying the lesson, they will learn more and remember what they've learned. So many lessons ae quite casual--I try to make it fun! I stress the basics, and have made songs out of the basics, for instance, how many beats each note gets. It's easy for children to remember things if there is a song about it! And yes, I have them play the song too. Every student learns at his or her own rate, so sometimes I go slowly, explaining each concept in different ways, until I see they've grasped it. And above all, I review, review, review, because remembering what has been learned is just as important as learning it in the first place.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

I try to teach my students that making music is fun and rewarding. My personal goal is to teach music in such a way that the student eventually becomes musically independent. Every facet of music making comes into play in order to reach that goal!! During the summer months my students choose his/her favorite type ol music to work on. lf the student loves a piece of music, they will progress immeasurably.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

One of my best strength as a music teacher is to motivate and inspire my students musically and become the best violinist or violist they can be. As a result, many of my beginner students continue their studies and have become advanced players performing with in their youth and/or school orchestras as leaders and on occasion as soloists. My approach to every student is individual, designed to bring out expressive musicality through mastering instrumental technique.
