Teaching Philosophy: “I believe in offering my students positive reinforcement and encouraging their creativity,” says Tatiana.  “I enjoy working with young children. Typically, I modify the music curriculum to meet their individual needs and incorporate the Suzuki Method which allows them to comprehend and perform music at a rudimentary level. I emphasize the combination of the Suzuki and traditional methods to develop and refine their learning skills.”
