I'm a very practical teacher, and believe in learning theory through practice, following both Kodaly's and Orff's methods. I believe in teaching how to correct one's own mistakes, rather than just correcting the student, so they can keep improving on their own. I also carry as a motto Decroly's conception of the centres of interest, and try and find what's more appealing to the students so we can work from there on.
