ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

Bachelor Degree: Virginia Commonwealth University, Course Work: George Mason University , Course Work: Old Dominion University, Teaching Certificate: VCU

Overview:

My name is Janette Zahia C. and I am a music educator with Fairfax County Public Schools where I teach kindergarten through 6th grade general music and 5th & 6th grade chorus. In addition to public school music education, I teach clarinet privately. I’ve been playing the clarinet for 19 years and I attended Virginia Commonwealth University where I graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor’s of Art in Music. I am a freelance musician who performs regularly with the Fairfax Wind Symphony and Hexagon.

EXPERIENCE

I have been playing clarinet for 19 years. I have been teaching public school general music & chorus-- now going into my sixth year. I've been teaching clarinet since high school when I first started out as a Tri-M music honor society mentor. I taught privately in college and I teach privately on the side. With my students I record what we've worked on each lesson and always send out a lesson plan and agenda out for the next week after each lesson. I encourage my students to audition for ensembles, perform in those ensembles, play recitals, and compose/arrange their own music. I believe in fostering a life-long love and passion for music.

METHODS USED

I use a variety of clarinet method books based on my current professional library. I also order based on student need. Method books are selected based on the student’s ability. Lesson plans are developed based on the student’s abilities, progress, and expressed goals. After each lesson, I email out to the student and their guardian, a run-down of what was covered with next week’s agenda and what the student should practice. I teach using all learning modalities and like to actively involve parents/guardians in my process if they are willing to learn and take it on.

LESSON STYLE

My teaching style is fun and engaging! In a typical lesson, I chat with a student for 1-2 minutes, go into warm-ups, drone work, technique, etudes, concert pieces, and sight-reading. Goals are set with all parties involved (student, parent/guardian, teacher, music director). I love to inspire my student through many various avenues while giving them additional musical opportunities where they can perform or learn new skills. This is my motto surrounding music: “Music is the social act of communication among people, a gesture of friendship, the strongest there is." Malcolm Arnold

My son attended a virtual music camp taught by Janette during summer 2020. She not only was a phenomenal teacher, she communicated with me everyday on my sons progress, strengths, and opportunities. She even shared his work with me daily. If I was asked if I would refer her to a friend, my answer would be “of course!” Make your child a music believer, just as my son did.

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.
