Stefanie's Teaching Philosophy

I believe private lessons are necessary in order to have the full experience of learning an instrument.  As a private teacher, my goal is to give students the best pedagogy about the instrument and the music they are studying.  My teaching acknowledges the individuality of each student and his or her unique goals.  A variety of teaching materials and methods are used to help  address learning styles and aspirations.  I am constantly researching to stay current in my teaching.  I strive to create a friendly, fun, and hard-working environment for lessons!
