Overview:

I’m a energetic, knowledgeable, and motivated music instructor that lives to teach music to anybody. I graduated from Louisiana State University with a music performance degree. I started my first band Director position after I graduated from LSU in 2008. I was blessed to help a band grow from 12 to 39 in the 3 years I was there. After I left, I went to The University of Central Arkansas to obtain my master of music degree. After completion of my masters, I immediately went to doctoral school.

EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience starts when I was in high school. I taught private lessons as well as the lead instructor in our percussion class granted by the director. When I was in high school, I wrote to percussion scores for our marching shows. In my senior year, I was picked up by a musical touring group, and I was able to play drum set with professionals. After high school, I went to college and participated in wind bands, percussion ensembles, operas, and chamber ensembles. In graduate school, I was able to arrange marching shows, Direct large and small ensembles. When I was at the University of Memphis, I was the percussion instructor from 2013-2016.

METHODS USED

My methods of teaching change with each student. All individuals learn differently. I start by seeing where each individual is and how they react to the material. We first learn basics and move as fast as the individual can or wants to. I want all my students to play pieces by themselves and with others (not just the same instruments). I’m always wanting my students to be a well rounded individual in music and in life. I don’t look as myself as a music instructor but a person gearing a person up to conquer anything they want.

LESSON STYLE

From the first time I taught a person how to do a drum roll I was hooked on teaching. My goal is to teach 1 million people. I love seeing how excited my students get after they “get it.” There is never any down time in a lesson, I always have many lessons prepare for a student. I want my students to take control and do the assignments without me assigning them. Performances are very important to me. I want my students to perform at least 2 in a semester. I believe this helps them feel more confident with every performance under their belt.

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
