I'm a spirited passionate instructor who loves teaching students. As a 2009 Bethel College graduate with a Bachelor's in music education, I value education and seek to inspire my students. I've had the opportunity to play all over the world and meet wonderful and gifted musicians. I'm also a composer. I believe it is never too early or late to pursue the dream of becoming a skilled musician.
My experience began when I was an assistant band director in the Memphis City School system. I gave lessons and helped form the marching and jazz ensembles. My studio has produced All-State and All-West Tennessee players, as well as collegiate level students. I have taught many genres of music including jazz, classical, bluegrass and gospel. I'm always excited to bring in new students!
I have developed my own beginning teaching materials. I also use popular method books for intermediate and advanced levels. I give a fall and spring recital in which all students are encouraged and motivated to participate in. I believe in motivated engaging lessons that produce a fun and enjoyable time at all skill levels.
I love to see a student express themselves through music. My style and approach is to tailor instruction for the individual student. This is done with the belief that everyone does not learn the same. By recognizing accomplishments and progress, I seek to keep the desire of music alive.
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.
