Passionate About Inspiring Others
I pride myself on the rapport I develop with each student. I'm one of those lucky people who enjoys what I do. One of the biggest complements I can receive is when students tell me they love coming to take lessons. Talent development and longevity with my students is rewarding. Sometimes I'm fortunate to see my students weekly and year round for several years. I get to know them, and they confide in me. The music they make is their true reward. I also use intermediate rewards along the way, like gold star charts, and color-coded stars in their folders to reinforce good attitude, independence, practice & preparation, and a job well done. I encourage them to surprise me with something I didn't ask them to do. Adult students love to exceed their own expectations.
