Personally: Mrs. Busovsky lives in Newark with her husband, son and dogs. When she is not with her students, she enjoys kayaking, reading, scrapbooking, Philadelphia sports, coffee, running her son to his activities and spending time with her family. As a kid, Mrs. Busovsky's dream was to tour the world as a professional singer/backup singer! She found her passion for becoming an educator in high school and a new dream of being a music teacher was born!
Teaching Philosophy: Mrs. Busovsky believes that all children are musical! Her role as a teacher is to help children tap into their musical abilities by providing them with a safe environment where they can learn and grow and be free to be themselves. There are no 'mistakes' in music and children need to know it is ok to not be perfect as it is all part of the creative learning process. Mrs. Busovsky enjoys providing her students with numerous possibilities; from making music just for fun or auditioning for various Honor Choirs, All-State Choirs, School Solos or Musical Roles. Mrs. Busovsky feels that a strong music education is important in the well-rounded growth and development of children and the skills they learn in the classroom and/or private lesson (creativity, discipline, cooperation, flexibility and courage, just to name a few) are ones that will be beneficial in adulthood.
