Sarah's Teaching Philosophy:
As a violin teacher, my greatest passion is sharing the joy of playing and performing music with others!
My teaching philosophy is deeply rooted in the idea that music is for everyone! I believe that if a student has a good attitude and proper instruction, every student can become a proficient, confidant and sensitive musician.
As a teacher I try to find unique ways of challenging the individual while being kind and supportive. I believe that maintaining positive self esteem during lessons is integral for students to realize their own potential and develop the internal motivation needed to practice and listen carefully.
Violin lessons should be a fun and enjoyable experience! With patience and consistent practice, every student is capable of improving and being proud of themselves. Music is an important, inspiring and nourishing part of people’s lives, with benefits that extend into every aspect of life.
