I am a passionate and methodical instructor who loves motivating students to learn and share music. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Music degree Violin Performance in 2016. Throughout my performing experience, I have had the opportunity to play at Carnegie Hall in New York, as well as perform alongside the ASO at the Verizon Center in Atlanta. Teaching has always been an integral part of my life whether it was helping a peer in middle school or building a studio in college and teaching.
I began teaching beginner players dating back to high school and continued teaching in college part time. I have taught a diverse age range of students, strongly focusing on musicality, phrasing, and intuition of music. I heavily focus on eliminating bad habits early while engaging in flexible teaching styles. I have over 8 years of experience as a violin freelancer, mostly in weddings. My students are always encouraged to ask questions and to have fun. My job is for a student to learn and I feel a student learns best when they have fun.
Beginner students typically start with Essential Elements. Once the basic fundamentals are grasped, the student will be introduced to repertoire in Suzuki. Intermediate and advanced students will be introduced to solo repertoire that may include concertos, sonatas, and etudes. Scales will be an essential part of practice. My method is to keep students engaged and challenged by setting small goals each lesson for students to accomplish in order to avoid feeling overwhelmed. When all the small goals come together at the end, my job feels amazing when the student feels an immense amount of pride and accomplishment in their hard work.
The most rewarding feeling is when a student of mine feels a passion for the music they are learning. They are passionate usually because they are succeeding. Therefore I make it a mission of mine to set realistic goals for each student at each lesson. I constantly acknowledge students accomplishments and good habits, which in reaction makes students excited to learn more. By trying to observe what inspires each student, I can efficiently assign repertoire to each student accordingly in order to boost their interest and learning curve.
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
