ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

BA, California State University, Fullerton, Music Education 

Overview:

I am an energetic and passionate teacher who strives to pass on my love and knowledge of music. I am a recent graduate from Cal State Fullerton with a degree in music education. During my time in school, I focused not only on cello performance and technique, but on various teaching methods and pedagogies as well. I have a true passion for teaching and have had the opportunity to work with middle school programs as a teacher/conductor assistant.   

EXPERIENCE

I began teaching at a very young age in church for various children's program. After seeing how rewarding working with children is, I began teaching music in an elementary school's after school program. I soon expanded into teaching at the middle school level, and adults.     

METHODS USED

For beginning students I like to begin with a combination of Hal Leonard's Essential Elements and Suzuki Method books. I find Essential Elements to be useful for learning the fundamentals of playing the instrument and music theory. However, Suzuki offers the ability for students to quickly play solo repertoire. I also incorporate learning and understanding scales for the purpose of learning fingering patterns and intonation. As students progress, I also find Rick Monney's Positions Pieces extremely valuable. For adult students, I apply the same methods as well; however, I also learn what their interests are and begin to bring easy pieces to play, often duets. 

LESSON STYLE

Every student is different and learns in different manners, which makes teaching a challenge. This is a challenge that motivates and excites me. I make sure to put all my effort into adapting to every student. Overall, I set reasonable goals for each student that are challenging, yet attainable. I believe in providing positive reinforcement while pushing a student to be better. Ultimately, my goal is to transfer my love for cello and music to the student and will always find a way to do so.
