Education relevant to teaching music
I graduated from Germantown High School in 2011, and moved on to study Clarinet Performance at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I study with Todd Levy, the principal clarinet of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. I have played at masterclasses with David Bell of Lawrence University, Jun Quin from Baylor University, and Julian Bliss, the British clarinet prodigy. I will graduate suma cum laude in the Spring of 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance. I will continue on to Graduate School to get my Masters of Music from UWM.
Teaching philosophy and approach to teaching
I believe that the best way to learn music is holistically. It’s important to learn the instrument and the notes, but it is also important to get a full music education–to develop aural skills, theory skills, self discipline, and determination. Students should be able to I fully believe that the most important goal of a music teacher should be to develop a love and appreciation of music as a whole, and this is done by making lessons FUN, while still structured, for students.
