JoAnn's Teaching Philosophy
"I teach rock, country, jazz, and concert performance with a concentration on rudiments and sight reading. I have my students select some of the music to learn in order to keep their interest in playing strong. I run special classes during the year (drum line and school of rock) in order to teach students to work together in order to make good music. This also demonstrates to students and parents just how much fun music can be. If they enjoy music, they will stick with it."
