About Michelle

I have had the privilege of teaching music to all grades k-12 and college for 30 years. I have also taught music appreciation for 10 years on line to high school students. I believe my enthusiasm and understanding of music and how it can enhance any subject has helped my students reach their potential.

Although my certification is only JH level, I I took extra credits in Biology in college and love the study of the human body and it's complex systems. As a music instructor I am quite learned in Music and he Brain and it's effect on learning. I have trained teachers on how to integrate he core subjects and music for greater learning.

I have taught both instrumental and vocal as well as piano for over 30 years. I have taught special needs and have had great success teaching those on the spectrum including ADD, and even several blind students.

Having a family member with Autism gives one experience that is not in a degree. As a music educator I had every child in the school and have had extensive experience teaching piano to students with autism.

Students all learn differently and I have found that I can integrate music in almost every subject to help students learn and retain knowledge. The connections are real and measurable.
