Working with children supported by their parents is one of my greatest joys. The encouragement that comes from me as their teacher and from their families is essential to the learning process. I try to select music for my students that they will enjoy and that will help them grow musically. Motivation for performance often comes from the music itself. Motivation also comes from playing together or for each other. Performance goals help to develop self confidence. That is why I believe in providing many opportunities for students to perform in casual and comfortable settings. I also provide group lessons in which students can learn musical concepts, perform for others and interact with others in a fun filled environment.

I have discovered that music enriches the lives of children in many ways beyond the music itself. The process of learning a discipline that uses the brain and the hands working together enhances learning in general. In my experience, I have seen the attention span and coordination of students improve tremendously in a short period of time. Learning music develops sensitivity to sound and to all of the arts. I encourage my students to pursue other musical and artistic endeavors besides the piano. When they do that, they enjoy all areas of the arts and are able to share their music with others.

IMG_20150706_142717edtI sometimes think that I am the luckiest person on the planet.  I have an occupation that after more than forty years still brings me much pleasure.  In each student there is the possibility of making a life-long lover of music and if I am successful then I will have made a life-long pianist as well.

jb1My experience has taught me that as much as possible each student needs to be playing music that is new to both of us. It produces some of my best teaching. Tracing a “plan” through method books and supplemental materials is not always productive.  Every student needs to be viewed as a tiny, micro business with “change” being the operative word.

My experience has taught me that performance goals are what push students to the next level of play.  The concerts can be very relaxed and without memory but there needs to be an abundance of them.

My experience has taught me that I need to invest my time in understanding the passion my students have for other activities.  I need to prove to them that music will enhance these and future interests throughout their lives.  Many adults regret that they ended their study of music too soon.  I would prefer not to add to that list.
