  • Voice: Emily Bennett - Grades K-12 - M/T

    My first responsibility as a teacher is to create a safe, nurturing environment that encourages musical and personal growth. Not only do I want my students to be confident musicians and artists, I want them to be thoughtful human beings who feel inspired to create and learn on a daily basis. Additionally, I feel it is my responsibility to establish a solid foundation of healthy, smart singing with each student. Since each student comes in with their own set of skills and obstacles, it is important that I remain flexible and creative in my teaching, and continue to study and learn everything I can to benefit my students. I strive to be an advocate for my students and lead by example. While I know each student grows at their own pace, I think it is important to encourage them to take risks and reach for what they might believe is unreachable.
