Philosophy of Education
I like Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences. Basically it says that, based on personality differences, there are many different types of learners or ways of learning, and a teacher needs to be flexible enough to know what style will be best for each student. Some are visual learners; others are more auditory in the way they take in information. Others need to move or have a more social interaction when learning. Some need more structure than others, or more freedom.
My goal is that my students feel comfortable about asking questions and following their interests. I model for the student the correct way of doing something, we try it together, then he tries it alone. There should be a good balance of serious, fun, easy, and more challenging work. If I can make students feel the way I do about music, that it is something of great value which can greatly improve our lives, I will have succeeded.
Students should be inspired to take charge of their own learning, so as to become independent thinkers and life-long learners. I try to provide the foundation for their development by offering a choice of activities in a variety of styles. The most important aspect of this philosophy to me is that each student feels safe, valued, feels that I know him and that he is important, and that an atmosphere of mutual respect surrounds the learning.
