Increased technical ability of individual performers by focusing on musicianship and performance techniques as well as utilizing non-formative and performance assessments.
Enhanced student learning and motivation by integrating technology for use in student assessment, teaching theory, and ear-training lessons.
Focused on individual student needs through differentiated teaching methods in both whole group and one-on-one instruction.
Developed a variety of curricula for ages Kindergarten through 12th grade (e.g. instrumental performance, age-appropriate theory concepts, and music history).
Utilized inquiry-based and project based learning in design of lesson plans.
Designed cross-curricular learning linking music to math, history, science, and language arts.
