Philosophy of Teaching
I choose music because it is a way of expressing our inner thoughts and emotions. I believe all students should express themselves through an instrument, including the human voice.
Music is a powerful language that often changes our views and behavioral reasoning through our studies and appreciation of listening to music.
Music has been part of my life since the age of six. I have studied all music styles and through my studies, have honed my natural abilities.
Music is a subject that touches on all avenues of education. It develops the analytical side of the brain (math) as well as the creative side (language).
Music sharpens memory skills, encourages creativity, and most importantly, builds confidence in individuals to live and cope in today’s world. Life has many challenges; music heals and should be part of every person’s life, making us more sensitive to the needs of others and understanding life around us!
Style of Teaching
I conduct lessons plans according to learning style and ability of each student. I teach students of all ages. I cover music fundamentals and advanced music theory. I teach Classical, Jazz, and Contemporary styles of music, with particular strength in developmental piano techniques.
