I'm a music lover and theatre geek and I love teaching students of all ages! I started playing flute at the age of 8 and I haven't stopped! Flute is my passion along with Ukulele and Singing! I have been in many different bands including concert band, symphonic band, wind symphony, marching band, plus pit band and other competitive bands! I've played at weddings and Christmas parties and I love all types of music! I have done many exciting things including Blue Lake and a music class at Walt Disney World!
I've taught lessons on and off for four years now! I took private lessons for years and I taught lessons in high school to other students! Regular lessons were an essential part for me when I was learning how to play flute and to continue to help me develop and grow! I believe that anyone can play an instrument, no matter what their age is! I believe that doing not only scales and warm-up's but to also incorporate new, recent music that the student enjoys will help them improve and continue to enjoy lessons!
For beginner's I tend to start with lesson books, especially Hal Leonard's Essential Elements because that's what I learned from! I move up from there and like to teach lessons from all different types of genre's and also teach different techniques such as vibrato, jazz flute, etc. Scales and warm-up's are an essential part of every lesson and I always do them no matter what age student I am teaching! I will ask for the student's feedback and make sure that I am giving them the best possible lessons and helping them reach their goals!
I like to start out my first lesson with each student by making a goal chart and uncovering the student's needs and goals and then go from there! I also like to make a lesson plan to help them along the way! I also make sure that my students are comfortable and not pushed too far out of their comfort zones! My favorite part of teaching lessons is helping students of all ages! I love to teach my students in a way that makes them excited to come to their next lesson and have them discover the same love for music that I have!
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
