Having been a Suzuki student growing up and then studying the philosophy long term at University of Denver with Kathleen Spring, She firmly believes that every child can achieve a high level of musical skill through careful instruction and a strong connection between the parent, student, and teacher. Because of her broad experience teaching music she tailors each lesson to the individual students goals. Shubhpuja
Each family and situation is unique, and should be treated with the whole student and family in mind. There is no one style of music, or method of teaching that is solely enough to create a well-rounded and open minded musician. Though she has high standards she is a very compassionate instructor, taking the time to boost the confidence level of her students as they experience the inherent challenges of learning an instrument. Her teaching method could be described as a modified Suzuki approach: she samples music from a broad range, introduce reading alongside ear training, and encourage self-expression and creativity.
