      Teaching Philosophy: My music education philosophy is to emphasize a student-centered lesson and curriculum that engages students about the theory, history, and fundamentals of music, while also integrating opportunities for students to create, perform, respond, and connect to music in a way that will transcend their time in the confines of our music lessons to encourage lifelong lovers, appreciators, and engagers of music. Her primary goal is to holistically support children through music.
