Overview:
I have known that I would be a teacher for my entire life, and I dedicate my life to spreading the joy of music. I mastered instrumental performance and music pedagogy while in college at the University of South Florida, but I continue to develop my skills every day. Though many schools have minimized music as part of the curriculum, I bring a broad music curriculum to my students' lessons. Through a combination of performing, listening, creating, and reading music, my students develop critical thinking skills that help them in all areas of life.
EXPERIENCE
Teaching and learning truly can make our world a better place. I have always loved learning, and becoming a teacher was the only option for me. I began giving private lessons in college, then took a wonderful full-time teaching job at Pensacola Catholic High School. There I taught Music Appreciation and Pep-Band for one year. Being a Navy Wife meant I had to give up that job, so my husband and I moved to San Diego where I am now able to teach students throughout the city. I make sure that by the end of every lesson, my students have made improvements on their instrument and are motivated to practice throughout the week. What a beautiful experience it is to see my students have fun while learning.
METHODS USED
As a private teacher, I create customized lesson plans for every student, every lesson. My curriculum follows the National Standards for Music Education so that students may learn more than just performing on their instrument. Reading music, composing, improvising, singing, and relating music to culture and other subjects are all part my lessons. By balancing challenging and successful experiences held to a high expectation, my students learn more than just music. My students learn how to learn.  
LESSON STYLE
I understand that most of my students cannot dedicate their lives to music alone. Music plays a critical role in their lives, but it must play a positive role rather than a stressful one. I make sure music is fun and enriching while giving students the musical tools they need to succeed on their instrument.

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.
