Teaching Philosophy: The philosophy I employ when teaching music is focusing on the “how” and “why” rather than the “what”. It is important that students know why you are having them play a passage a certain way, play a slower tempo, or change a voicing in an arrangement. Each musical choice made by a composer or performer impacts the way that the music is heard and felt. It is our jobs as their teachers to provide them with the knowledge to make informed music choices.
