Pamela hopes for her students to love making music. As a teacher she works to develop the skills of sight reading, proper technique, practice tools, knowledge of music theory and history, and positive performing experiences for all her students. Students of Pamela’s have participated in the Music Development Program, Texas Music Teachers Association Theory Exam, Achievement Auditions, UIL, I SOLO’d with SOLI, Winter Festival, MACSA Performance Club, biannual studio recitals, and more. Pamela believes the aim for piano lessons is for students to be well rounded musicians capable of playing piano in whatever capacity they most desire throughout their life.
