“My philosophy of education forces me to employ varied teaching styles, to create a safe environment in which people can learn freely and openly, and risk without fear. The students in my classes are talkers, listeners, music lovers, music haters, left brain learners and right brain learners. By recognizing the various needs of my students I must share my passion for the subject matter in a way that meets various needs. My students’ success is my success.”
