My music, movement and dance teaching methods are extremely innovative and have been meticulously developed, with careful assessment and refinement, over a 20 year span. Together, we work to create a learning atmosphere where students and their families, feel comfortable in music exploration, challenge and discovery; while fostering a love of instrument play, practice, performance and analysis. I cater instruction to the specific needs of students (special and otherwise) by meeting them where they are, while giving them space to grow into their developmental milestones.
I work with all ages, abilities and knowledge levels in private lessons, small group classes, professional development workshops and motivational seminars. I have worked with the span of special needs (ASD, AD, Anxiety/Depression, ODD, ADD, ADHD, CD, Gifted & ABA support), the conventional learning environment (public and private schools) and unconventional learning environment (homeschool and unschool). Nothing would make me happier than working with your budding musician(s), singer(s), dancer(s) and all-around fantastic music monkeys! ~ Lori
