Teaching

_N9A1430 2Teaching is extremely close to my heart and I have been doing it since I was 14, either privately or in state-funded institutions. My teaching philosophy is social constructivist in essence, based on the belief that people construct meaning and knowledge from their experiences.

I have taught cello performance to kids and adults, some of whom are now professional musicians. I also have experience teaching music and movement to toddlers, which is an especially rewarding job. During the last few years, I have focused on teaching music psychology and music pedagogy in higher education, in combination with my artistic and researching activities. In addition, I also supervise doctoral theses. Below you will find a list of my most recent teaching/supervision courses.
