I'm a dedicated music teacher who loves motivating my students to be their best. I teach voice, piano, and guitar, as well as beginners on brass instruments and steel drum. I graduated from the University of Alabama in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education and a minor in Spanish. I love music as a way to challenge myself and others, to communicate things that words can't say, and to take us to new and exciting places.
I have been teaching music for 8 years, starting while in college. I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching students from ages 4 to 20 to sing and play instruments because if you're not having fun when you're doing music, you're not doing it right. I love getting to see my students have breakthroughs as they develop their own musical personalities. I have also enjoyed my work with school and church ensembles ranging from ages 13 to 85 and can help my students have success at any level.
It's important to cultivate a student's musical knowledge by building upon their current foundation. Similar to the way children learn a language, music students of all ages should start by listening and singing/playing before learning to read and even write. Combining this natural approach with a focus on how and why to develop good technique helps students get the results they're looking for.
I help my students develop their own practice habits that help them to make music a practical part of their everyday life. It's important that students use healthy, smart habits from the beginning to avoid issues that can slow down development. The most important part of learning music is keeping it fresh and enjoying the process.
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
