Gintarė Stanevičiūtė

I am music teacher Gintarė Stanevičiūtė.

I started playing music when I was four – first I attended Yamaha Music School, then I studied at Balis Dvarionas Music School for ten years, where I graduated in piano. Later, I obtained a master’s degree in music education at the Lithuanian University of Educational Sciences. I have been working as a pre-school music teacher for seven years, and I also teach private lessons for piano and drums to children.

In my pedagogical activity, I apply various educational strategies – especially, I appreciate the musical education systems of Dalkroz, Gordon, and Orf. When conducting music classes, I always try to develop not only the musical abilities of children but also to open the beauty of the world of music to them, to pay attention to self-confidence, communication, cooperation, creativity, competence development, etc. My goal is to create an environment where each child feels safe, meaningful, and loved, and because each child is unique, we always need to take look into his or her individual needs and abilities.

In my free time, I like to travel, spend time with friends, ride a bike. Of course, music is the greatest passion of my life. I spend most of my free time playing drums in my music group, with which we have already released two albums and we are successfully performing all over Europe.
