Overview:

I have always had a love for music. It has always been something that I love to do and also share with others. I was involved in music during my high school years, being in both choir and band, and proceeded to earn my music degree from UNA. I have had many opportunities to perform including for the 2014 BOA Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium, and sing for the President of the University of North Alabama. I want to be able to inspire others to fall in love with music, and chase after their musical dream!

EXPERIENCE

I have been involved in music lessons ever since second grade. I began with piano lessons, and then over the years have taken voice, trumpet, guitar, and french horn. I would also attend master classes for the vocal department at UNA. One thing I have learned in all of this is the statement that practice makes perfect is very true! I have also learned that it is important to take things in chunks as you practice. That helps you to not get overwhelmed or tired! I believe that it is important to study more than just one area as it widens your knowledge.

METHODS USED

For beginning students who are children, I like to start with a book filled with colors and pictures and that contains solos and theory. I beileve this captures their attention and can also help them relate it to something that, to them, is fun. I primarily like to use Alfred's Basic Piano Library book which continues in sequence. This allows students to easily flow from one book to another as they progress. I also like to assign them exercises from the book titled "A Dozen a Day." This helps with muscle memory as well as get them more comfortable with the instrument. I also have adult books, which are more suitable for the older student, but I am also open for teaching in an area that the student is desiring to learn, and so I can find things to teach that accomidates that.

LESSON STYLE

I love seeing progression! During the first lesson or two, I like to see what all the student knows and what they are currently capable of. From there I can see where we need to start from and work our way forward. I don't like overloading the student with too much information at once, so I focus only on a few concepts at a time and work on it until they fully understand. I also believe that it is important to celebrate accomplishments, and that it encouranges the student to keep going in their studies.

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

Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
