Anne-Marie is a private lesson teacher and is currently available to teach lessons at your home and online. She received her training at Baylor University (MM in Music History and Flute Performance) and Abilene Christian University (BA in Music).
Anne-Marie believes the goal of education is to open minds and allow students to then think independently and form their own ideas. In being a musician, this includes the ability to communicate effectively and perform well; as a teacher, Anne-Marie helps students get to this point by giving them a defined goal, but allowing some degree in freedom concerning how they approach accomplishing that goal.
Anne-Marie believes in the power of demonstration, of being able to explain things in different ways for various learning types, and in outside practice of discovering oneself through healthy habits that will then benefit the student’s well-being and musical self. Above all, Anne-Marie aims to approach each student with kindness.
