Teaching philosophy and areas of expertise:
Noralyn's teaching philosophy is focused on her belief that a child is always capable of reaching his/her greatest potential in music, as long as you encourage self-expression, and nurture creativity in him/her. She believes that if every music lesson is enjoyable, meaningful, and fun for the student, than they will be more likely to remember the musical experience that they have had.
Her areas of expertise include: teaching with an emphasis in Kodaly, Orff, and Dalroze methods.
Professional affiliations & activities:
Other professional affiliations include ECMMA (Early Childhood Music and Movement Association).
Interests outside of music:
When she's not working with music, Noralyn loves to lead her church's youth group in performing juggling, acrobatic skills, dancing cultural dances, playing instruments, and singing in the community. They love to perform in nursing homes, youth gatherings, and festivals. Additionally, she enjoys playing WII at home with her kids.
