My Approach to Teaching

"My approach to teaching is a combination of solfege and classical with delayed music reading tailored to my students so that they first can learn expression through grammar of music. I consider the intermediate student to be more at the dialectic stage and the advanced student to be of the rhetorical stage. This approach to teaching and learning has proven to help my students in the areas of listening, repetition and expression."
