Jane’s Teaching Philosophy:
Jane’s goal as an instrumental music instructor is to create a motivating, inspirational and interactive learning environment that is beneficial for the student’s enjoyment of and development in music.
She is dedicated to helping her students achieve their musical goals and find their unique strengths in music by tailoring their lessons to their individual needs.
Every student is different and it is the teacher’s responsibility to help the students enhance their natural abilities and to equip them with the necessary skills to facilitate a successful learning environment.
In order to motivate students intrinsically, Jane strives to create learning experiences that the student can relate to on a personal level and use for self-expression. Therefore, the teacher must embrace the students’ individuality and differences by being perceptive to their cultural background, musical preferences (Jane will teach any style of music) and environments to which they are exposed. Furthermore, it is the teacher’s responsibility to create a balance between structure/discipline and the freedom of music-making in order to aid enjoyment and improvement and to create challenges that match the student’s skill level.
Jane exposes her students to varied practice techniques as well as music theory, ear-training, sight-reading and even research, which helps to prevent boredom and improve cognitive engagement.
Jane strives to create a well-balanced learning environment that is motivating, inspirational, and supportive, and one that meets the students’ individual needs.
Only by acknowledging students as different musical beings can we create meaningful music-making!
