The pedagogy I use is a synthesis of the different techniques of the many teachers with whom I have had the chance to work. Through the use of singing, dancing, acting and improvisation, I aim to develop my pupils’ musical and artistic skills, to hone their listening capabilities and to create an openness to different styles and cultures. I have been greatly influenced by Kodály teachers, as well as my encounters with Dalcroze pedagogy, theatre directors, voice specialists and dancers.
