ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

BM, Keene State College, Music Education

Army School of Music, Graduate, Tenor Saxophone

Overview:

I have been teaching music in public schools for the last 5 years. I graduated from Keene State College in 2013 with a degree in Music Education and a focus on Instrumental Music. In 2016 I went to and graduated from the US Army School of Music as a tenor saxophone player. During my time at the school of music I also played the alto and baritone saxophones. In college I played baritone saxophone as well as a variety of flutes to include alto and bass. I have joined Musika to teach lessons so that I may spread the joy of music making to more students.

EXPERIENCE

I began playing the flute when I was in the fourth grade. What started as "the flute is pretty" has turned into a life long passion for music. I became a licensed music teacher in late 2013/early 2014 after graduating from college. I then taught at several part time and temporary music positions before working full time. I have taught lessons to fourth grade students on woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments as well as directing band in grades fifth through eighth. I look forward to expanding my lesson teaching!

METHODS USED

For beginning students I like to start with a method book, such as "Tradition of Excellence". This allows students to start from the very beginning, especially if the student does not have previous music reading experience. I teach reading and playing hand in hand so that it becomes a memorized process. After working through the method book, I will create individualized lesson plans, to include solo repertoire, band music, or other methods books. I want each student to be working on something that is interesting to him or her so that the motivation to continue learning the instrument remains.

LESSON STYLE

After I've gotten to know the pace of learning for the student I will then create a custom lesson plan to ensure the student doesn't get either overwhelmed or bored. It is important to figure out the goals of the student and work towards achieving them. Each student is different and will work at his or her own pace. I believe that anyone at any age is capable of learning an instrument if they are a serious student. Seeing a student succeed is what makes teaching lessons important to me. If a concept is too difficult, I will move away from it and work on something else, or a smaller component of the overall concept, before returning to the concept and explaining it in a different way.

No credit card required.

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.
