"Most teachers don't like their students tapping their pens and pencils. I encourage it, because it helps develop a better sense of time and rhythm." 


"Instrument Dancing is a fun activity I do with the kids. It's a little lame since they're getting older, but that's what makes it so fun . Besides, they're moving around and learning the instrument names and origins"


"Story Time is something I incorporate occasionally to facilitate students' improvisation capabilities. Everyone gets a turn to add to the story based on a theme."


"I require all Choir students to know how to read and write music in addition to being able to sing solfege using hand signals."


"Percussion Ensemble is what I am most passionate about. We meet every week after school. Our recital will be this May."
