Author's NOTE: Much of today's music curriculum is screen-based (Quaver, for example). I am a firm believer—

  • In eye-to-eye contact between students and teachers.
  • That students learn and retain knowledge best while being physically and mentally involved and challenged.
  • That technology is an important tool for enhancing, but not replacing, hands-on learning experiences.
  • In providing ALL students a safe and nurturing classroom environment where they can explore music from all cultures and ethnicities.
  • And finally, I believe in sharing my 30+ years of successful experiences in the classroom with teachers who desire the same for their students.
