“Every student is unique and will respond to teaching approaches in very different ways. While one student may flourish from the goal setting and structure found in working to pass grade exams, another may respond better to a more aural and applied approach, allowing them to explore music freely. I strive to identify what learning strategies my students most respond to, and teach them to apply those strategies to take their performance as far as they are capable of.”
