Overview:

I have spent the last 5 years studying to become a great teacher! In December of 2017 I finished my degree in Music Education at Brigham Young University- Idaho, and in August I begin my Masters Degree in String Pedagogy at the University of New Mexico. I am very passionate about being sure my students gain skills through music education that will stay with them beyond what they study with me. My students walk away with skills like perseverance, appreciation for art and culture, dedication, confidence through struggle, and a healthy growth mindset.

EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience began when I was in High School, where I was a mentor to students in their middle school orchestra and a section leader for the violas. Directly after high school, I went to school at BYU-Idaho where I studied for 5 years as a musician and a teacher. I studied with Dr. Kevin Call, a viola student of both Don McInnes and William Primrose himself. I worked closely with Dr. Beck Roelser as well, a fantastic music teacher and mentor who studied at BYU and UNT. For the last 3 years, I cultivated a successful violin and viola studio in my previous town of residence. My first year I had 2 students, and by year 3 I had 10 and several prospects. I love studio teaching!

METHODS USED

My beginners start on violin, and the first few weeks learning the basics of position and posture. Then I start them with Suzuki Book 1 and supplemental rhythm and theory exercises. After book 1, I assess their progress and drive and either switch them to Barbara Barber's Solos for Young Violinists, or have them stay through Suzuki Book 2 and 3. If my students have interest in viola, I encourage them to stay on violin until they are in high school or even longer (through Mozart concertos) if possible. I love it when students bring me music they want to work on! Whether its popular music, music for their church or youth group, or even a classical piece they have in mind, I will do my best to work with them on it! If it is a piece beyond their level, I will develop a plan with them to make it possible.

LESSON STYLE

I adapt to all learning styles and necessary modifications/accommodations they might have in a classroom. I encourage all students to explore and discover their own learning styles and I never use shame or comparison as a motivator. My lessons are always fun and upbeat, with lots of healthy celebration of progress! My students have a practice requirement to pass of any given song, depending on their piece and their level of playing. Parents are always welcome to watch my lessons and I highly recommend their involvement in their students music education.

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.

Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
