What Parents and Students Say (continued from home page)
"I have often stood in awe while watching her teach. Every available second is a teaching moment."
"Quite often in a crowded room, I look for her only to find her taking the time to talk to a child that is new or uncomfortable in the crowd. To her, every child matters."
"Participants are filled with such joy and excitement that they often forget that they are learning."
"She has brought the love of music to a new generation. Not just my son...ME!"
"She is always building bridges using music. Teachers, students, and family members are all involved and enjoy the moment more, because we are together."
"Why do we perform? To bring joy to others!"
"She and her students will tell you, she gets a bit crazy before a performance. But it's only because the students are being encouraged to perform the NEW skills they have learned. Not just perform what the students are comfortable with or what the audience wants to hear."
"Truly a gifted performer, director, and teacher. Consistently able to bring out the best of those around her. Always motivated to try something new and to include everyone."
"In this digital age, there are fewer and fewer people who make their own music. Isn't music a gift of humanity? A joy we all should know?"
"My son took piano lessons from Ms. Brigitte for several years. He loved playing piano with Ms. Brigitte because she made it fun and enjoyable. It was a stress-free learning environment. Ms. Brigitte was a kind and caring teacher for my son. She chose appropriate music based on my son’s interest. She never made him play music he didn’t enjoy. She always tried to find music that motivated him to learn. She played duets along with him and paired him with other students for music celebrations. Ms. Brigitte was always full of positive reinforcement and support. She truly showed my son how to love music."
"Many people lose their love of teaching as the years go by. I think Brigitte is what they call a "lifelong learner". The process of learning goes both ways. Often from student to teacher."
"I know it can't be possible, but even when faced with a daunting challenge, I believe that she is enjoying every moment."
"One of the best teachers I have ever known!"
"She is always willing to learn a new song, dance, or teaching technique for a student."
"She not only is a gifted teacher but a talented performer. Brigitte performs with a variety of musical groups and events."
"Brigitte is very organized and professional. A wonderful addition to any group."
