BM, Stephen F. Austin State University, Music Education
I knew I would enjoy teaching others when I was a member of my high school band's leadership team. As I helped others, I found that I truly enjoyed the brilliant moments of success. Aside from teaching, I still enjoy performing on my instruments (sax, guitar, and piano) and am always looking to take on new students!
I have been teaching private lessons since I was in high school in 2007. I worked with younger students in my program who couldn't afford the rates of the professional instructors in the area, so I taught for free to members of our lowest ensemble. I found that I enjoyed teaching and I soon set course for my degree in music education. I continued teaching while at college to student ages 10 - 31. My passion grew stonger and after being a director, I found that I enjoy working with individuals and smaller groups much more! Bring a hard work ethic and let's get started!
I have multiple books to work from based on the age and skill level of the student. I work fundamentals with all levels and can teach topics from multiple angles. My music library is expanding and becoming more diverse so that I give work solos with all of my students. I keep track of lessons and set a plan for each student in order to maintain forward progress.
I enjoy playing with the student at times and I tend to move around frequently. This allows me to demonstrate styles while watching the student's enbouchure, posture, angles, and instrument position from every angle. I give praise when praise is due and motivation when I sense struggling!
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.
