EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience began in early high school when I began giving lessons to my peers. The quality of teaching was well received, and many students beyond my peers began to request lessons. Soon enough, I started a private lesson business centered in Tallahassee, Florida, which continued until the end of my college career at Florida State University. I received my degree in Music Education and continued to teach in the classroom environment. I am now a private violin instructor that is based in Olympia, Washington, with experience teaching students of all ages. Encouraging regular practice in a way that is understandable and engaging, and with proper form, is my primary emphasis for my students. It is valuable for each student to understand the importance of practicing, as well as HOW to practice at home. Lessons are fun, engaging, and encouraging of curiosity and exploration. I am always looking forward to working with students of all ages!

METHODS USED

For beginning students, I typically start with the Essential Elements method book, which introduces the fundamentals in a way that is friendly to all learners, easy to understand, and interesting. Once the students has an understanding of the fundamentals, we will typically move on to Suzuki Book One, supplemented with various other exercises. At this stage, the student is able to give their first recital performance. For intermediate or more experienced students, I will typically find out what the student is interested in and provide solo repertoire based on their interests. I believe in providing each student with challenging and engaging warm-ups, exercises, and etudes so that the time for solo repertoire may be spent exploring artistry and musical expression.

LESSON STYLE

I enjoy teaching so much because I am able to watch each student develop a passion for music, work towards rewarding careers, and grow a great sense of curiosity. Watching students work through challenges and become excited about music is very rewarding. Students in my studio are encouraged to take on new challenges, but also to learn at their own pace. Each student works with me individually to set goals at each lesson. I always make it a point to acknowledge accomplishments, give constructive feedback, and create engaging lessons and learning experiences. I also carefully tailor my lessons to the interests of each student.

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.
