Bachelor Degree: University of Nebraska-Lincoln
William H. Thompson Scholarship
I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. I'm about to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Saxophone Performance from the University of Nebraska Lincoln. Performing all kinds of music has been one of the greater experiences of my life as a musician. I'd love to share my talent with others! I see my talents a gift that should be shared as much as possible. If I could spend my time teaching a student to grow and love music that would be such an ideal experience for me.
My teaching dates back to my high school years in which I instructed younger students in middle school band as an assistant to the director. I have performed in all kinds of groups including jazz bands, wind ensembles, latin groups, and even choirs. I grew up in Cozad, Nebraska which is a small town, but I was influenced by so many kinds of music given this age of technology. With my versatile background I think I can really guide a student in their growth and development as a musician. Music is a beautiful passion to pursue.
For beginning students I really get to know where the student is at in their learning experience. I try to individualize the learning experience as much as possible, learning about the student's background his or her interests in music. Also, I would track the student's progress carefully taking notes about lessons to better guide them in their musical journey. Above all striving to foster a great curiosity to learn! Learning music is so rewarding. It should also be a fun experience for any student.
I am someone who believes that nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! That's why it is so important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a students desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs. Also, having a great attitude with positive encouragement reflects my 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
