Ardith Haley possesses an uncanny ability to recognize untapped potential in individuals and ensembles. She intuitively understands how people grow as musicians and individuals through creative processes and effortlessly adapts her teaching and coaching to bring this about. Working with Ardith will inspire you to make substantial and unexpected changes in how you perform and teach music.
The day following the clinic, my students and I wrote down the 6 rules that Dr. Lonis shared with my class. These rules are now posted in my room and we talk about them daily. These rules are helping to guide their music making in ways that are easy for them to understand. As well, they are taking responsibility for them, and trying to apply them themselves without prompts.
