Edwina Li

Teaching Artist Statement                                                              
Coming from a long line of teachers, Edwina has always known she wanted to teach.  The musical journey is the most important process, and it is this exploration and sense of wonderment and discovery that she loves to guide students through.  In order to achieve thorough understanding -  on the page,  on the keys, and in the ears - Edwina’s approach to teaching is individualized while maintaining a methodical, structured approach to literacy and musicality.
