Teaching Philosophy

As a music teacher with Montessori preschool certification, I developed my own preschool music curriculum, which I taught for many years at Indian Hill Music School and at Oak Meadow Montessori School, where I also directed the music program through grade 6. My philosophy of education is deeply rooted in Montessori principles of respect for each student’s need to learn at his/her own pace, with much patience and gentle encouragement. My motto is: patient persistence produces promising performers.
