In working with children of all ages, I find that making lessons fun, engaging but productive is the key to making their musical experience memorable. I use a variety of techniques for learners of all tyoes and I am able to connect with students that other teachers find difficulty working with.
I have worked with all kinds of students in the past, but I particularly work well with students with disabilities (ADD, ADHD, Learning disabilities) or students who have difficulty learning in a regular classroom enivronment.
I try to be innovative to teach students in a different way and I try to use colors to help students see patterns in music and to create a different way to learn music and make it stick!
