Overview:
Every student has a unique learning style. With more than 30 years of experience, I tune in to each student’s best learning style to make the most of our lesson time. My graduate studies focused on human performance, including motivation. I have developed skill and comfort in teaching virtually and have a professional account with Zoom. I’m fully vaccinated and will teach in person with both students and teacher fully masked. If CoVid numbers rise, I do revert to virtual lessons during CoVid surges.
EXPERIENCE

Studied Piano Pedagogy with Mary Elizabeth Land and has been teaching private piano lessons for 35 years.  As a member of the Florida Federation of Music Clubs, students have the opportunity be adjudicated by some of the top musicians in Florida at Festival.  Ninety-nine percent of students in Cyndi's studio earn Superior rating at Festival.

Cyndi also leads children's choirs in the area and sings in the Don Thompson Chorale, a community chorus in Jacksonville.

METHODS USED
Teaching in a traditional style, the method books primarily used are Alfred's Prep Course, and Faber. For the very young (4-5 years old), I have had great success using Music for Little Mozarts. I encourage independent sight reading with additional books of holiday songs and fun songs. Each level includes theory and/or note speller books. For the very young, I include note spelling games. I also allow students to perform their own compositions and help them notate on staff paper to understand rhythm and theory as applied in their own creations.
LESSON STYLE

Cyndi emphasizes note reading, rhythm, technic and theory at every lesson to prepare students to ultimately learn independently.  Building confidence is key factor in music lessons.

Each student is unique.  Everyone has their own learning style, appreciation for music, coordination and goals. In the 1:1 lesson, the teacher has the responsibility to meet the students' unique learning style for the best results.

Having conducted research in The Mozart Effect in graduate school, Cyndi firmly believes that music increases spacial ability which leads to better math skills and increases intelligence/apptitude in children.  Music lessons for adults helps keep the brain active as it generates new synapses.

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
