Teaching Style and Philosophy
As violin pedagogue Galamian notes, "students are not alike and should not be treated alike and . . . teaching according to rigid rules is teaching of the wrong kind." As a teacher, I observe the student's playing, musicianship and personality to identify the strengths and weaknesses particular to the student. By recognizing the talents of each student and helping them overcome challenges, a student can reach a new level of artistic expression. In addition, through practicing the art of music, a child develops a sense of responsibility and discipline which they can take into practice in many aspects of their lives.
