As a teacher, I believe that anyone, at any age or ability can learn to play an instrument at a high level. I teach to develop independence, confidence, and self discovery in my students, while maintaining a strong foundation in technical ability and knowledge of the instrument. I encourage my students to be strong thinkers, meticulous problem solvers, and fearless explorers.

I hold certifications in the Suzuki Method as well as Creative Ability Development (CAD), which uses improvisation to as a tool to help students find their own voice. I have studied pedagogy with Christiane Pors-Sadoff and Richard Fuchs (a student of the pedagogue Paul Rolland) and CAD with Alice Kanack. 

Testimonials

"My daughter grew much more comfortable with experimenting on her instrument, which was a joy to see. Aimee guided the group with poise. She brings a seriousness of artistic intent to her class, which allows the children to make work that is at once beautiful and profound but also distinctly their own. I would highly recommend Aimee as a teacher!"
