In teaching music, I've established a few goals both for myself, and for my students.  The first and most important is to cultivate a lifelong appreciation for music and musicians, regardless of whether or not they decide to pursue music as a career.  The second is to develop a meaningful rapport and safe learning environment.  The final goal is to establish the skills necessary for the student to be confident in their understanding of fundamentals and musicianship.
