Brigitte has taught music to students of all ages for over 8 years including early childhood music, piano, guitar, ukulele, and voice. Her teaching style stems from the “whole child” approach in which the social and emotional side of learning become valuable tools in a well rounded music education. Her goal is to help students understand the essential connection between their instrument and music theory, while creating an environment that is safe, nurturing, and student centered.
