Thoughts on TeachingMusic is fun! I strive for excellence in teaching, in student performance, and in fostering a love of music in each student. Each student’s course of study will be tailored to them individually. I believe that it is important to expose students to different types of music so they can discover how to appreciate all music. Even though a variety of music will be used to teach the art of the piano, I will use classical music as the foundation. Although music can be fun and very rewarding students must do their part in practicing for it to become an exciting and enjoyable experience.
