PERSONAL TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
“Anyone can enjoy music.
Anyone can create music.
Anyone can enjoy creating music.”
Teaching students of all levels, talent, and ages, I’ve come to the conclusion that whoever has that urge to participate in the music making process, either as a performer, composer or an active listener, can enjoy creatively expressing themselves through making music.
The word “playing” in English suggests a game, and learning music must be a fun experience! In private lessons I concentrate on technical abilities and the personal emotional connection to music with the same intensity. My students are encouraged to find their own, real voice, be creative and write their own songs!
“I have had many teachers so I’m in a position to know quality when I see it. She is so knowledgeable about how to bring the voice to it’s fullest potential. She is supportive, kind, honest, funny but most of all I am singing better then ever and feeling more confident. I would recommend her to anyone who loves singing and wants to express themselves as fully and passionately as possible.”
