I am a energetic and inspiring teacher. I have been working as a music teacher for over 10 years. I've been in many different orchestras, marching bands, and even played on a cruise ship. I have had a passion for music ever since I could sit up straight and reach the piano keys. A little known fact is my great ancestor was Joanne Sebastian Bach. So I would like to say my love for music runs deep in my veins. My tip on keeping students inspired is to give them the responsibility for their music. I show them how to make their instrument sound as good as possible as early as possible. The target they have is to focus on making a brilliant sound and I try to empower them to teach themselves – to me that is the definition of being a successful music teacher. I'm so happy teaching and performing. I want to do more of the same and want to keep improving myself. That's very much a musician's mindset.
My teaching experience started when I was in college. I always wanted perform and that led to me giving my roommates a lesson. I think practice is very important and I am very encouraging to helping students understand my love for music. It is also important to me that students have fun during their lesson. Learning an instrument can be fun it just takes the right teacher to find the students interest. I have taught kids from 3 years of age to a grandmother that is 97. Age is just a number and I believe anyone can learn.
I like to create my own lesson based on the student, finding the interest is very important. I am not a big fan of books as it tends to get boring fast. When I first started out I lost so much interest as my teacher had me do page by page lessons. I like to be creative. Yes we have to learn the fundamentals and I can teach that in a fun way. I like to teach by songs that the students knows. It keeps their interest and makes them feel excited they are learning something they always wanted to learn.
Everyone learns differently, So I can't say that i have a certain teaching style. I change my style to match the students needs. Growing up with a learning disability I learned multiple ways to over come it and love to see my accomplishments show through my students. Finding the inspiration inside the student is what is important. Setting goals and understanding the students wants and needs makes you a successful teacher. Having that passion makes me never give up on a student. Inspiration is the key to my teaching style.
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.
