Larisse is always continuing her education in Music and Music pedagogy and is currently working towards being a high school music teacher. She hopes that in the future she can develop an original teaching method which is influenced by other methods such as Dalcroze, Kodaly, Orff and Suzuki as well as learning from her own studio teaching as to what works with children.
She understands the need for music students to not only enjoy their instrument in performance, but to learn and embrace music as a whole. Including reading fluency, aural skills, understanding of varied music styles/genres and to be able to gain the skills to compose their own music if they wish.
She is always trying innovative methods of teaching that are fun, hands on and interactive with other students (if possible).
Students that discover music in a fun and natural way are more likely to take their own initiative to stick to the commitment of learning music for life.
