Featured Music Education Faculty

Paula Parsché
- Music Department Chair

My goal as a teacher and mentor is to challenge each student, at his or her level, to explore the vastness that is music. I strive to encourage students to seek means by which to gain informational context, develop and implement skills and strategies, and communicate in appropriate and diverse ways. In turn, I expect that they will carry forward a positive model of teaching and learning that they may share with others.
