How we are taught determines how we learn, as well as how we interact and act within our world. Education needs to address the whole person, not just specific skills that are required to complete a task or learn something new. I believe that students already have a wealth of knowledge within themselves from prior experiences both in and out of formal settings. This knowledge is integral to who they are as humans, and understanding what a student already knows and perceives to understand is important to being able to effectively teach them in a way that best achieves a balance between the student needs and requirement outcomes. I endeavor to engage students in being kind people and to foster a joy and desire for music making that will continue throughout their lives.
