Teaching Philosophy

Pamela believes the aim of piano lessons is for students to become well rounded musicians capable of playing the piano in whatever capacity they most desire throughout their life. Her students work to develop sight reading, technique, practice tools, and a knowledge of music theory and music history. Pamela works to provide positive performance opportunities for her students by exposing them to and preparing them for the many great opportunities around them. Students of Pamela’s participate in activities through the San Antonio Music Teachers Association, Texas Music Teacher Association, MACSA, and additional events that challenge and interest them. Events for her students include competitions, festivals, and recitals. She hopes her student will find joy in making beautiful music and share it with others.
