ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:
MM, Colorado State University, Music Therapy BA, McMurry University, Piano Performance
Overview:
I have been involved in music for as long as I can remember, singing in church choirs and leading contemporary worship.  I graduated from McMurry University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Piano Performance in 2004.  Having decided that performing was not my #1 passion I then pursued a Masters of Music degree, specializing in Music Therapy, from Colorado State Univeristy.  I have been a professional music therapist for the past 9 years, working with children and adolescents with developmental disabilities as well as mental health populations.
EXPERIENCE
I have been teaching music lessons as a music therapist since 2007 and have much experience with adapted lessons for students with developmental disabilities and other limitations.  I started teaching typical lessons in addition to adapted lessons in 2013 and it has been an added joy for me. I love teaching basic music lessons and music theory to children developing strong musical roots. I encourage a regular practice schedule for all of my students to help develop strong habits and engraving music in each of their lives.
METHODS USED
I believe in a hands on approach.  Although I do use books to help reinforce and practice music concepts, I find that children learn through doing, so I use a hand over hand approach. I believe that one does not learn unless one wants to learn and therefore see myself less as a teacher and moreso a creator of an environment in which the student is able to teach themselves. I prefer to use the Bastien Piano Basics books in my lessons, however if a child has had experiences and prefers a different method I am willing to work with that method as well.
LESSON STYLE
Each student learns at their own pace, therefore goals are set individually for each student.  Students need to have a passion for learning music, therefore I try to create a fun, patient environment in order for children to learn.  I believe in setting goals and acknowledging when an accomplishment is made to reinforce the desire to learn. Regular practice is encouraged and incentivized if needed because practice is a necessary habit in learning and furthering development. I also encourage students to think about music they want to learn and work towards theirritated own personal goals.

No credit card required.

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.

Ok
