Principles of Pedagogy and Philosophy

  • Very simply, my job is to teach the students in the way that they learn most effectively

  • I teach primarily through school band programs to assist students reach their personal goals, flourish in their school music program, and learn to love music through performance on the clarinet. 

  • In consultation with the student, parents, and band director after a few lessons in which I can get a feel for the student's natural learning modalities, I design a long -term plan for success and instruction geared toward using the band program's requirements in tandem with the student's goals with input from the people who know the student best - parents and director - to guide my instruction and weekly assignments to fulfill that goal.
