From the moment I was able to make out what music was and how it works together, I have been in love with the concept and drive that it takes to develop and incorporate music in every day life. Whether it may be through a movie score, show, church, orchestral or choral piece each movement has their own distinct character. I have been performing since the age of six at distinct churches, of which I have formed part of their worship ministry and a worship leader for more than 5 years. Participated in various vocal competitions such as solo and ensemble and TMEA All-State. I am currently an active singer of the Houston Baptist University Schola Cantorum choir.
Teaching has always been part of my growth through various stages in my career. Through out high school I have coached and taught at various churches by strengthening their worship teams as well as several middle school singers at my home studio that were preparing for their Region auditions along with their solo and ensemble competitions. I enjoy watching younger generations fall in love with the art of music and continuously reach out to expand their talent and strengthen their craft. I continuously encourage my students to seek higher ground and not get frustrated if they are not seeing any results right away, there is a certain grace for the stride that they are in and should enjoy every moment. Focus on the details to make each moment unforgettable.
I firmly believe in establishing long term goals for which the class is being taught and developed. For beginner students who are children, I tend to lean into the music that they are more fond of listening to and develop an atmosphere of interest while using various colors, singing methods, rhymes that will grasp their attention and in the long run develop their ear. For young adults and up, I develop my lesson plans accordingly depending on their level of musicianship. Whether it is for a hobby, or for an upcoming recital/competition I try to draft out a set of goals so the student and I alike can track out progress and project into what works best.
As a kinesthetic learner, I have always had a tendency of using colors, rhymes, similarities, acronyms among other things to ease my learning ability of which I have found myself using a similar method when explaining a concept to one of my students. Setting short and long term goals allow for me and the student to be enthusiastic to learn and eager to step into our next lesson. Keeping an open conversation and weekly challenges to keep the student motivated and have something to look forward to. Knowing that each students has their specific strengths and weaknesses, my goal is to encourage my students that there is no weakness to big that can stop their growth and will go above and beyond to allow them to fall in love with their craft.
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
