Instruments:

I believe firmly in a strong fundamental technique and a clear concept of what it means to play with a beautiful sound. Beyond that, rhythm and the development of a good ear for both pitch and style make up a good deal of what I do with my students. I emphasize scales, simple melodies, and (as things progress) a healthy dose of etudes (Andersen, Berbiguer, Bozza, etc.) and Taffanel and Gaubert Studies. I always have access to a pianist and try to make sure that my students get ample experience playing with accompaniment!

I customize my lessons to each student as best as possible. For certain skill levels/styles I may recommend books or other materials, but for the most part I teach from scratch, making detailed lesson plans and notes for each individual student. I like to focus on technique, music theory fundamentals, and learning repertoire in each lesson.

My teaching experience goes back 9 years.  Before I moved to Chicago for school, I lived with my parents in Springfield, IL and taught private drum lessons out of their basement.  Although I did not have a lot of experience teaching, I realized how rewarding it was to see a student learn and gain confidence on their instrument.  It was something that I wanted to do more and saw a future in teaching.  After I graduated from Roosevelt University I had more time outside of academics to start a teaching practice.  In 2011, I worked at Lynn Marcel School of Fine Arts in Hillside, IL. As a drum instructor I helped design a corruculum plan and taught younger students ages 8-14.  In 2013 and 2014, I worked at School of Rock in Oark Park, IL teaching drum set, voice, and piano for students of all age groups.  This was an interesting and new way of teaching for me because at School of Rock the students not only took private lessons, they got to perform in groups and played a recital at the end of each season.  Also in 2014, I worked at The People's Music School in Chicago teaching music theory and group drum lessons for kids ages 5-14 and class sizes of 30+.

I am a classically trained singer with a Master's Degree in Vocal Performance who lives, performs, and teaches in New Orleans. I frequently perform professionally in several genres of music, including opera, jazz, musical theatre, and pop. I also have several years of experience teaching in all of these genres. I sing with the New Orleans Opera and St. Cecilia's Asylum Chorus, in addition to fronting my jazz band, the Melanie Gardner Quintet, which performs regularly on Frenchmen Street and around the city. This past year I performed in French Quarter Fest, Voodoo Fest, and premiered a new opera with the New Fangled Opera Festival. In addition to teaching in my private home studio, I also work at Encore Studio of Dance, Music and Theatre in Harahan, LA, and have taught voice lessons at Creating U Modeling and Talent Agency in Covington, LA.

My goal as a teacher is to make my students better musicians in every aspect. Ear training and sight-reading are the most important aspects in the music and I have figured out fun excercises to improve all students. My musical background is playing acoustic double bass and eletric for many New Orleans bands primarily playing traditional New Orleans music, jazz, funk, and blues. I have a Master's of Music from the University of New Orleans. Playing various styles of music in the New Orleans music has enchanced my ear and made me a top player amongst bass players in the city. My general focus as a teach is to find was that will stimulate your general interest in playing music.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
