ABOUT

B.M., The College of New Jersey, Music Education - 2015   M.M, Rutgers University, Harp Performance - In Progress

Awards:

2015 - The College of New Jersey Music Valedictorian

Overview:

I am a dedicated perfromer and teacher, who fell in love with teaching trying to share the immense love I have for the art of music.  I graduated with my Bachelor of Music in Music Education from the College of New Jersey in May 2015, and was already accepted with a scholarship and a Co-Adjunct position to begin my Masters of Music in Harp Performance at the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers.  A late bloomer to music (I started in 7th grade when everyone else started in 4th!) I have been honored to play solo recitals as well as with ensembles, and have played Lincoln Center twice, as well as the Cherry Blossom Festival in Japan.  

EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching both in the public school system and privately over the last four years.  Through teaching both string and wind instrumental lessons and ensembles during my time in the Flemington and Hopewell school districts, as well as my own private students I have found that trying to find a connection to the love of music I have and an interest the student already has there is a pathway through practice, and dedication to creating some really wonderful moments for that student. 

METHODS USED

For beginning students I like to focus on the Essential Elements series, such as Essential Elements 2000 for Strings, which is a wonderful way to combine technique and music reading; which I believe are the two most important basic skills.  After these building blocks I start to choose reperiotire that reinforces and advances these concepts.  For adult students, I like to use the same building blocks -- if necessary -- and supplementing that with their own interests.  

LESSON STYLE

Every student I have is a different person, speaking both mentally and physically.  A cookie cutter mold does not work for everyone, although everyone does need to be taught the same building blocks.  My job is to try and make a connection with each student and find what makes them drive to learn and do more.  Reminders of growth and progress are equally as important in times when skills are challenging or do not develop as quickly as the student would like.  I have had to juggle up to 100 students in a room each learning differently, which truly informs my one-on-one style of personalized engagement.

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.
