My hope is to expand students' knowledge of classical music beyond their own experience, and to expand their skills of listening, analyzing, and appreciating fine music. I wish for students to engage with the material at hand, and with me, as I believe good teaching involves intellectual exchange. My music class is heavily dependent on group work, where the groups are randomly assigned. Working with others, especially those who may clash with each other, is an important attribute to offer both in the students' future workplaces, as well as their personal relationships. Lastly, I feel it is important to create tomorrow's educated, cultural audiences today. The music world depends upon it.
