2009-2013 Music scholarship 2009-2013 Academic Scholarship 2013 Graduated with honors
I love working with students and showing and watching their progression as they grow as young musicians. In 2013, I graduated from Benedict College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Trumpet Performance. Being a full time musician and a co-owner of a recording studio has been a great experience.
My experience in teaching starts from me being an instructor for the chamber ensemble back in college. I became an instructor when the director came to me and asked if I was interested in becoming a music instructor. I always encouraged my students to practice everyday. By practicing every day then student will notice that they are progressing. If a student isn't progressing then I'm not doing my job. I encourage my students to enter any competition or recitals.
For all students I began with breathing exercises, then buzzing in there mouthpiece. Then go into working from the Essential Elements book by Hal Leonard. After they have progressed and grasp the fundamentals, I usually began giving them solo repertoire. I usually ask my student what they are interested in and once the fundamentals are learned by the student I work with them on something they may want to do.
I love my students progressing and working hard to develop a passion for music. Each student will progress at his or her own pace. I set goals for my students each lesson they come to me. Encouraging students and getting them to set there own goals they focus and then they work at it.
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.
