Lessons are upbeat, positive, well-paced and keep the student engaged and enthusiastic. I incorporate theory, ear training, and composition into my lessons.
Technology plays an important role in lessons. We record the students' playing in the lesson so that the student can more easily assess what was done well, and what requires more work.
Students are provided with an account for a music learning web site. Students have fun playing the games on the site, while improving their music skills significantly.
We have four group lessons throughout the school year, and two recitals. Our holiday recital is held at area retirement homes, and our end of the year recital is held at the Memorial Art Gallery on University Avenue. They are all very fun!
