I began teaching privately in Beaumont, Tx while pursuing my undergraduate at Lamar University from 2009 to 2015. I ended up working adjunct in my Masters degree at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas from 2015 to 2018. While working for UNLV I also acquired a job teaching for Tailor Robinson Music Company. During my nine years of teaching, I have taught a multitude of ages, experience levels and different genres. I focus on getting the students to understand that there is a method to the voice like any other sport or trade, its the motivation that determines whether you have the patience and focus to achieve your goal.
I focus on finding a routine for each individual singer, because just like all voices are not the same, all minds do not think alike. Assessing them in terms of where their skill level is for ear training and vocal technique. If student is interested in learning repertoire I will also assess their Music Memorization and sight singing skills. I will compile all of this information and give them a regimen that will inspire motivational growth. For younger students 5-10 my main concern is that they have fun during the process of learning the voice spoon feeding them important information while gaining the experience to become someone passionate about music.
I teach according to my students needs. I have an assortment of different tools in my arsenal, However not all tools work for every singer universally. It is about mixing and matching the specific tool to a specific student. My over all goal is to create a universal language of the voice through physical exercises that allow singers to understand their voice. In essence if I do not have a tool in my arsenal that can get the student to understand, I will create a tool to help that student understand. The greatest part about being a teacher is knowing that you never stop being a 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.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
