BM, Galileo University, Cello performance
2013-Lester Smith Creative Music Scholarship
I am a dedicated musician who loves music and likes to teach and share the things I know to others. I graduated from Galileo University in 2007 and I was a formal member of the National Symphony of Guatemala. I studied in the National Conservatory of Music of Guatemala and I began my teaching experience there for a few years as assistant professor. I lived in Rockford Illinois for 4 years and I moved recently to Colorado.
I was an Assistant Professor in the National Conservatory of Guatemala for 2 years. I was a teacher from some programs with the State of Guatemala in the country side and the capital city, and a member of the string quartet "Ad-libitum". I went to Honduras, El Salvador, Dominican Republic as a teacher in new programs with each country. I gave private lessons for 3 years and I was a part of the academy "New Song" for 1 year. Recently I had a scholarship giving lessons to elementary school students in Sycamore Illinois.
Typically I start with teaching the parts of the cello and showing the student how to sit and grab the cello. Next, I continue with the scale of D major and help with the left hand and train the ears for intonation. Finally, if the student shows more progress I start using a method.
I am always open to new ways of teaching and I belive the teacher can also learn from the student and improve his teaching skills. I always keep in mind that every student is different and the teacher has to work with their level of speed and progress.
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.
