My teaching style is influenced by the Suzuki method but it incorporates learning to read music early on in student’s development. By placing equal emphasis on both reading and listening skills, I am able to provide a sense of musical independence, allowing students to explore and create music outside of my curriculum. The natural resonance of the instrument plays a strong role in my teaching, as I feel that it is paramount to student’s musical development, and more importantly to their enjoyment in playing. I believe in the idea of music as part of a well-rounded life, and I feel that through teaching I can provide an important mode of self expression, as well as help students to access an awareness of body and mind that can be brought into everything they do. I focus on the individual needs and musical tastes of each student in order to give them a true connection to music that will help them to develop great musicianship, and enrich their daily life.
