Leah’s Teaching Philosophy:
“1. Know the student/help them grow in confidence and identity/where does music fit in to who they are
2. What do they want to learn? How can I facilitate them towards their goals.
3. What is their heart? Help them understand they can make choices in their discovery, appreciation, and skills in making music.”
