ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

Bachelor of Music Education, Vandercook College of Music

Awards:

Illinois Future Teacher's Corp Scholarship

Overview:
I was a teacher in the public schools, and I wanted to be able to give more one-on-one attention to students. I wanted to be able to teach in a way that uplifts students and makes them excited about music. I also wanted to be able to make students feel comfortable and have fun. I have a degree from Vandercook College of Music in Music Education. I like to teach using the Vandercook method and give students a strong foundation on their instrument. 
EXPERIENCE
I taught general music, choir, piano, and band in the public schools. I also worked in an after school youth orchestra, teaching woodwinds. Before that, I taught guitar to friends and some beginning students. I also helped my classmates who were learning guitar. I have mostly worked with beginners, and some more intermediate students. I have taught in the classroom setting and small group lessons, and some one-on-one lessons. 
METHODS USED
I like to use a combination of methods and method books. For a beginning band student I would use Standard Of Excellence of Essential Elements. For guitar students I like to use a combination of methods, depending on the student. I like to use the Old Town School's book for their first songs or Essential Elements for guitar. I like to use a method for guitar that emphasizes reading notes instead of just tabs, and also emphasizes rest stroke and free stroke. Once the student becomes familiar with the guitar then I like to focus on music they are interested in, once they know the basics of the instrument. 
LESSON STYLE
I like to see students getting excited about learning new concepts in music. I also like to see music becoming a part of their lives and learning. I enjoy passing on what I've been given. I like to see music becoming a part of students lives and being an enjoyable experience for years to come.

She teaches my 9 year old daughter. She is very good with children. She has previous experience and it shows. She is patient and encourages my daughter to strive.

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
