2006 - Phi Theta Kappa International Honors Society Inductee
I began my musical journey at a very young age. I would sit and play on my Grandmother’s organ at the age of 5 learning songs by ear. In grade school I was introduced to the theory of music playing violin and later in high school playing clarinet in the school band. I was accepted into the Music Program at The University of Tampa after receiving piano instruction from local musician Florence Tillman. At The University of Tampa I studied piano, vocals, and guitar. I received private piano instruction with Professor Linda Rodriguez and was graded before a jury where I received an A for my efforts. I also received private piano instruction with Professor Kenneth Hanks of Hillsborough Community College. I received private vocal instruction at the University of Tampa with Dr. Yvonne Rene Dechance, Dawne Wisner Eubanks of Hillsborough Community College, and Margaret Lampasi of SUNY Adirondack in Upstate New York. In 2010 I graduated SUNY Adirondack with an Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts & Social Sciences with honors as an inductee of Phi Theta Kappa. Currently, I am studying for a Bachelor of Arts at SUNY Empire with concentrations in Performing Arts and Literature. I love to learn and I am eager to teach to share my knowledge, experience, and love for music in the community.
I have been teaching since I was studying at The University of Tampa in 2006. Since, I have taught students in Upstate New York while studying and graduating from SUNY Adirondack. Most recently I have been teaching students in the Riverview area while studying for my bachelors degree for the past 3 years . I encourage all creativity and I am passionate about education and the effects music has on educational abbilities. I like to focus on discipline while making learning fun and interactive.
For piano study I use traditional book methods. The books I teach from are Bastien Levels Primer to Adult Beginner. My vocal methods are taught using interactive multi-media and traditional methods combined building a repetoire of songs while focusing on technique.
My teaching style is an active and open learnig environment where I enjoy fostering creativity while reinforcing the discipline required of learning an instrument. I like to see students advancing in performance while learnig the fundamenals and basics of music theory.
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
