"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."
