A music education for the mind, body and soul | Leslie DeShazor | TEDxUofM

Join Leslie DeShazor as she walks you through some of her philosophies on “teaching”. As a long time musician and educator Leslie sees more and more the need to shed convention, question teaching norms and strive more to find what her students need on an individual basis and in group settings. Leslie DeShazor has developed a method that includes, improvisation, movement, composition, singing and any other mechanisms that will help her students connect to violin/viola playing from the inside out.
Leslie DeShazor is a freelance musician and educator based in the metro-Detroit area. She has performed as a soloist with the Toledo Symphony, been featured on the tracks of Grammy award winning artists including Smokey Robinson and Aretha Franklin, and regularly plays with the Ann Arbor, Saginaw, Flint and Sphinx Symphony Orchestras. Leslie opened a private studio, works with nonprofits such as the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and coaches the string sections of metro-Detroit schools. In her talk, she explains her unique, cutting-edge teaching style which abandons traditional music education theory and instead emphasizes innovation and improvisation by teaching the whole student, personally and musically. Leslie holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
