I am a very enthusiastic and motivated instructor who loves working with students of all ages to share my love of music. I started flute and piano as a little girl and participated in many flute competitions and performances. I was accepted to Brigham Young University's music program for flute performance and received my minor in music. Performing and competing has been very rewarding to me and I want to share that with others. I am now a mom to three beautiful little girls and continue to play music at every opportunity!
I have been teaching lessons since I was in high school. I began teaching private lessons part time and have been teaching students on and off ever since then. I firmly believe in every student's ability to succeed and so I emphasize consistent, focused practice. I have helped multiple students gain a love for their instrument and go on to compete and perform as well. I encourage the students have fun and pursue their dreams. My students are encouraged to participate in competitions and recitals so that they have every opportunity to progress.
For beginning students, I place a large emphasis on the fundamentals i.e. scales, chord progressions etc. I also start them on solo pieces and like them to choose the pieces they are working on. I believe that if they choose their repertoire then they will have greater love and enthusiasm for the music. I also encourage them to push beyond what they think they can do. I work hard to match my teaching style to the needs of each and every student. I am classically trained and will help my students engage with and love the music they are creating.
It is important and rewarding for both me and the student to have a passion for their music and learning. Because of this, it is important to me that each student sets their own goals. I will encourage and help the students to set high but realistic goals that will bring them enthusiasm for the music. I try to bring inspiration and a lot of guidance to each student. And I love to have fun. When teaching, I will begin with scales and chord progressions (it's so important to have a strong foundation!) and then move in to more complicated and rewarding pieces of music.
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.
