I’m a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. Between 2011-2015, I participated in Lancaster Bible College’s wind ensemble and graduated with a Bachlor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies and Children & Family Ministry Studies. Working with students in China, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Sttes has been one of my best experiences of my life as a fine arts instructor. I have also been privileged to partner with peers from Europe and role models from Asia during my time as a fine arts performer.
My teaching experience dates back to 2005, as I began teaching private English as a Second Language in both my home and students’ homes in Beijing, China. Encouraging regular practice on a consistent schedule is one of the key points I like to emphasize for young students, as it tends to help the student progress and gain a passion for their studies. I’ve also found that a combination of different activity exercises can go a long way in helping students enjoy their studies and motivate them to practice and continue to learn. If. Student isn’t having fun in their lessons, then I’m not doing my job! My students are encouraged to enter recitals, as well as work towards creating their own unique work, so they can feel good about their accomplishments and stay novitiate to learn. I’m always looking to bring on new students who are passionate to grow as individuals.
For beginning students, I typically start with simple traditional songs that they know. Once the student has progressed to have a grasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire appropriate for their first recital performance. For advanced beginners to intermediate-level students, I try to find out what interests the student may have, and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons engaging and fun—no matter their ability level. Such activities would be to do fingering exercises as well as introducing new fingering for the students so that they can learn complex musical works.
Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for the fine arts! Therefore, it’s important that each student progresses at his or her own pace, I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a student’s desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more. A method I use to encourage my student’s progress is to give them stars for when they work on their assignment; the stars they earn will allow the student to choose a song of their choice that is not from the same genre being studied—this may be a pop song. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs.
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
