Performance Experience: I have performed in different groups . I have played in small orchestras in school. I have played in my school’s string ensemble as well.
Teaching Experience: I have been teaching private music lessons for 2 years, but I have also been a teacher’s assistant, mentor and general education teacher.
Teaching Philosophy: All students should explore the good works of music. Music teaches our students to be independent and individualistic. As students sing or play, they begin to learn how music solves problems and can help them think critically. Music teachers help others around them to recognize that humans are musical beings. We as humans do everything rhythmically such as walking. Music helps people sit down and logically think first rather than acting upon situations.
