My name is Jessie and I am an experienced clarinetist. I've played the clarinet for 13 years and I have graduated from the Hartt School of Music with my BM in clarinet performance. I have a background in teaching beginner players as well as adult students. I've been apart of countless performances and I am a very knowledgeable musician. I've participated in bands, orchestras, marching bands, chamber groups, musicals, and solo performances. I've also performed with orchestras for church functions and in the well-known concert venue, Carnegie Hall.
The goal of my teaching would be for the student to reach their potential and to play to the best of their ability. That will take some effort on the student's part as well as mine. The student should be practicing everyday if possible and come to lessons prepared and ready to go.The learning environment should be relaxed and friendly. There should be patience and understanding. I will do my best to make sure my thoughts and intentions for my students are clear and understood.
I think students around grades 4 and 5 get excited when they can physically participate in things, so holding the instrument and learning how to make sounds on it is very exciting for them! Students around grades 6 and 8 begin to start questioning the roles of adults in their lives and their peers become increasingly important; because they have become so interested in their friends they may like group work a lot. High school students can think more concretely and they probably won't need as many detailed examples to understand intricate subjects; they are more motivated yet they may be easily discouraged. Adult students are very different because if they personally don't feel like they are seeing results, they are more likely to quit; however, they are definitely self-diciplined and self-motivated.
I want to teach people who love music how to express themselves in a musical way. Playing an instrument is more than learning good technique and sound, it's also a great way to release your emotions. Even if my student isn't a natural musician and does not have dreams of going into it as a profession, it still gives them something to hold onto in their lives and they can use it however they choose to. If they are interested in pursuing music, then they would learn the same things except they would be applying it to musical elements as well as life skills. I think the more you understand the music and what it's trying to tell you the easier it is to relate to and articulate.
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.
