Teaching Philosophy

Teaching and Learning Methods for the Early Music Ensemble:

Musicians who perform early music forge a connection with the history of the period; therefore, part of this class will include historical information presented primarily through manuscripts and supplementary multimedia materials. Presentation of this information will be through brief lecture-discussions during each class meeting.

My teaching philosophy for this particular course is as follows:

1. Each person is empowered to make his or her own individual contribution.

2. We will all work together to foster an environment of respect and goodwill. This is especially important since—for many students—this class challenges the student to play original instruments that the student may have never encountered.

3. We each need to respect the group by practicing our music and working towards a fulfilling musical experience.


Courses I Teach

  • MUSC 437/4437/6437 - Early Music Ensemble
    The Early Music Ensemble, made up of students, professional, and university community musicians, performs Medieval, Renaissance and early Baroque literature on period instruments. Student participants gain valuable experience by rehearsing and performing alongside experienced musicians in both solo and small ensemble works. If you would like to participate, but have questions, please feel free to contact the Director. The Early Music Ensemble’s two annual concerts include works by a variety of composers such as Machaut, Dufay, Dowland, Byrd, Couperin, Rameau and others. Members often choose a tune to explore, like the French folksong L'Homme Armé, or the Dutch song, Venus bant, and perform settings of the tune by several composers. The ensemble usually includes harpsichord, viola da gamba, recorder, flute, krummhorn and voice.
