Teaching Philosophy

The essence of integrating faith with knowledge and learning for me is the concurrent development and nurturing of the head and the heart. As a teacher in the performing arts, I invite and expect my students to engage deeply with material, applying their intellect as well as their emotions and spirit to their study of concepts and characters. I strive to guide students as they explore their individual instruments and encourage them to share their gifts in ways that are meaningful for them and for others. As students feel free to reveal their hearts, their intentions as performers become more authentic and clear, and their passion for both artistic excellence and honest expression of their faith expands. I aim to provide students with the tools to not only sing freely but to discern helpful information from harmful in their further studies and experiences. Being a committed Christian in the performing arts often means facing a great deal of darkness, but it is my hope and desire that my students will emerge with full awareness of the capabilities of their voices, a sense of where they as singers fit within the musical realm, and a personal conviction to use their voices to express their faith and impact their communities.
