  • Guitar: David Bennett - Grades K-12 - W

    As a teacher of music, my primary goal is to meet my students where they are, and to challenge them to go deeper. Proficiency in the various musical crafts requires hard work and a commitment to the long-suffering of learning the fundamentals in order for the gift of music to be realized and our specific passions to be enriched. I am very passionate about this process! As a performer and everyday player, I am enthusiastic about sharing this gift and helping my students to understand how they can become life-long learners as well as independent and self-motivated in their discipline. Because I was introduced to music, guitar in this case, at a very young age, I consider it a great opportunity and responsibility to work with young people, and I am very much so looking forward to it.

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

    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.
