Overview:

I'm an energetic and positive instructor who loves working with students of all ages and has particular experience with elementary age. I began teaching lessons in my third year of undergrad at Harding University and recently graduated with a degree in Vocal Music Education with a license to teach. I have 10+ years of singing experience, both as a soloist and choir member, and I'm excited to be a part of the Milwaukee Symphony Chorus this fall. Additionally I am a teacher at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music and enjoy serving the Milwaukee community though their Connections program. I look forward to meeting you!

EXPERIENCE

My music teaching experience began in my undergrad years when I taught private lessons through the Searcy Community School of Music. With my voice students the first thing I focus on is establishing a healthy mode of singing, including elements such as correct breathing, posture, and balanced vocalisation. The songs that we choose together will include areas that allow the student to practice these. It is my practice to choose 1-2 songs with the student each semester, and let them have a free choice for their third song. I think it is important that my students get to sing music that they enjoy!

METHODS USED

For beginning students, I incorporate music theory right away with echoing tonal and rhythmic patterns, and then eventually matching them to music on a page. This is called the sound to sight system and is proven to be the most conducive way to learn music literacy. For older students I will assess their skills and if they already can read music, we will continue to practice this skill by doing one or two sight reading examples each lesson. If the student desires I am also equipped to teach upper level music theory and can include that as well for the more advanced student.

LESSON STYLE

I love giving students musical tools that allow them to explore and make music on their own. My ultimate goal for each of my students is that they will gain musical independence and be able to create and investigate without assistance! This is why my lessons are very student-centered. What are the student's interests? What are their long term goals? How can I help them succeed in their current ensemble? These are all things I consider when guiding my students though lessons. In the end I view my position as a position of service to my students and I want to help them reach their goals.

No credit card required.

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.
