Welcome! Poke around, learn a thing or two, ask for whatever you need that you don't see here.
My Education and Professional Background
I have a Bachelor of Music in Education from The College of New Jersey. I began teaching in 1999 and took two years off to move to Arizona and acquire a Master of Education in Counseling from Arizona State University. I am National Board Certified in Early and Middle Childhood Music with an emphasis in band. I have given nine clinics at professional conferences, conducted the Peoria Junior High Honor Band and the Arizona 6th Grade All State Band, and have written a beginning band curriculum that I use with my 5th graders.
My Educational Philosophy
Every student can do it. Some need more help in acquiring skills. Some need more help in acquiring motivation. Some need more help in lessening fear of failure. (You can't play an instrument well if you are afraid to fail.) I do my best to meet the needs of all of my students, setting in motion a lifelong love of music.
