as Music Teacher
My teaching philosophy is centered around guiding and assisting my students in building a foundation, made up of a practical understanding of music and its theories. Based on this kind of foundation, any creative musical direction or ambition is possible! My students and I set short and long term goals to propel them in their musical ambitions. I do regular research into new music teaching techniques and continually sharpen my own musical skills by learning from the more experienced music teachers around me. I currently teach piano, voice, musical technique, musicality/expression, and music theory, with hints of composition in the mix.
I am a current member of the Idaho Music Teachers Association and the Nampa Musicale, and I encourage my students to participate in many of their musical programs, festivals, and competitions, in addition to having my own studio recitals throughout the year.
If you live in the Treasure Valley (around the Meridian or Nampa, Idaho area) and are interested in taking lessons, please get in touch with me or Meridian Music and Arts.
