Overview:
Greetings! I'm so honored that you have visited my page in search of music.  A bit about me... I'm passionate about music.  I've played piano for over 20 years, and I thrive off of the opportunity to be with others in music.  I graduated 2009 from Immaculata University with a Bachlor's of Arts, a focus in music therapy.  I'll be graduating in May 2015 with my Master's in Music Therapy.  My philosophy is based on building a musical foundation, providing a fun and inspirational environment.  
EXPERIENCE
I've worked with children, adolescents, adults, and older adults using my skills as a music therapist.  As a student, you should expect opportunities to express yourself in music, find enjoyment with the arts, exceed your own expectations, and experience continual learning.  I emphasize learning foundational skills, practice, practice, growth, practice, learning, experiencing, listening, practice, and exploring.  Did I mention practice...?  :)   Consistency  is key in music.  I've found that explorationg of styles helps keep students interested and makes for a better learning environment.   I'm so excited to speak with you regarding your passion!
METHODS USED
I enjoy teaching students at the beginner's level.  Generally, I start with the foundamentals and use Hal Leonard.  Throughout this process, I enjoy talking about what kind of music interests you and would love to build upon that repertoire.  As you progress, I will introduce pieces that are more challenging (thus more rewarding).
LESSON STYLE
Dialogue! Our lessons are based on our communication.  We will, together, set realistic goals and expectations.  I encourage and motivate students through positive affirmations and acknowledging your achievements.  I am also aware of difficulties and will help you through those.  As a music therapist, I have additional/advanced skills to be aware of your feelings and work through your experiences.  I am able to adapt to your learning 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.
