Yoanna’s Voice and Piano Lesson Approach
- When her students enjoy their music lessons and leave feeling excited about their accomplishments, I gets the most joy out of teaching.
- I want every student to be their own artist. I think music may be approached in a similar way to a poem, novel or essay; a great musical experience is a social one regardless of the musical tradition we choose to study. We need the discipline, the knowledge of the language and the technique, but we also need an enormous amount of imagination, patience, effort and enthusiasm. The internalization of musical rhythm, form, and harmony are among the most essential skills that enable a productive musical exchange that speaks directly to the soul.
- Music is everything and is in everything that surrounds us in our daily lives. It is simply a gateway to our own very soul.
