ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

BM, Evangel University, Music Education. String Primary 

Overview:

I’m a devoted music educator who cares about my students’ personal growth and development as musicians. In 2010 I graduated from Evangel University with a Bachelors of Music Education degree with a concentration in strings. I have performed all over the U.S. in my collegiate touring orchestra and even had the opportunity to go to Europe and perform there as well. I have also been selected twice to perform with the Trans Siberian Orchestra as a part of their pit orchestra and have been involved as an active musician within my community.  

EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience started several years ago when I was in high school. I was given the opportunity to teach some young beginning string players and I found that I really enjoyed seeing them develop and took great pride in their progress. I then went to college as a string player and played in multiple orchestras and took part in recitals nearly weekly during my time there. After college I started teaching private string lessons at a local music store. I had around 20 students I taught on a weekly basis ranging from the ages of 4 to 60; the majority being on the younger side. However, I think it’s never too late to learn an instrument! I am now an Orchestra Director at a local high school and teach privately as well. I love what I do and want to share my passion for music and the pride that comes with the mastery of an instrument with others.  

METHODS USED

For the beginning string player I like to start with a Hal Leonard method book to communicate and help string players master the basics. Once the student has progressed I will begin some solo repertoire from varying genres. I find it is always helpful to allow students to play music that they enjoy –- experiencing a range of both popular and classical pieces to broaden their horizons. I encourage my students to do a lot of listening as a part of their practice. I believe that if a student can hear how something is played they will begin to grasp the intent of the music at hand, which builds upon their previous knowledge. I intentionally plan my instruction to be fun and engaging, yet challenging.  

LESSON STYLE

I will always set goals that I know are within reach for my students. I want to create an environment that will help them develop a passion for music in a way in which they are comfortable, not frustrated. In my mind I am always going to put the person first that I am teaching by trying to find out what inspires them. I will then assess and change my style accordingly. Music lessons for me are more than just learning an instrument; being a true musician is about discovering who you are as an individual, gaining confidence, and practicing perseverance.

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.
