What’s the most rewarding part of being a music teacher?

The most rewarding part of being an educator for me is watching a student make progress and seeing how it excites them to learn new things.

What are the most common areas you see your students struggling in? How do you help them in those areas?

The biggest struggle I see for students is simply a lack of motivation. Sometimes students aren’t interested from the beginning and with those students, it can be very challenging to get them interested. I like to help them explore their musical interests and other instruments to see if another area of music piques their interest.

What do you enjoy doing outside of teaching students?

I enjoy playing basketball outside of teaching, as well as making my own music.

What do you think makes Hodis Learning & Music a great service and company to work for?

I enjoy working for Hodis Learning & Music because of the culture of mutual respect and kindness.
