Overview:

I'm a musician, a music educator, and music researcher. I enjoy teaching and sharing my passion for music with students of all ages. I received my Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Furman University in Greenville, SC and received my Master of Music in Music Education from Boston University in Boston, MA. I'm a certified music educator in the state of South Carolina and Massachusetts. I perform regularly on the flute and the violin but have had experience learning and playing other instruments such as viola, cello, bass, trumpet, trombone, and piano. In my free time, I enjoy playing the tin whistle at local Irish sessions in the Boston area.

EXPERIENCE

I have taught private lessons on the flute and the violin for the last five years and am starting to offer tin whistle lessons to students interested in learning to pick up Irish music. As a music educator, I fulfilled my student teaching at the middle school and high school level in Pickens, South Carolina. My goal as an educator is making sure that my students succeed and reach their goals. Music lessons should address students' performance goals while also emphasizing that the music-making experience should be about fun and enjoyment. I bring enthusiasm and curiosity to lessons as I facilitate students' musical growth.

METHODS USED

I always begin lessons with some form of warm up to focus on beauty in tone and then I follow that with exercises that build technique. I am happy to work with students with whatever method book they are currently using but I am also happy to suggest method books and literature that I feel could further guide their growth. My lessons are very student-centered in that I see what the student's goals are and work from there. I adjust my lessons based on how the student is performing that day. I am happy to teach students of any age and of any ability level!

LESSON STYLE

I encourage my students to set short-term and long-term goals for themselves to work toward accomplishing in our lessons. I also pay special attention to the goals and desires of the student's guardians to know what I do to help students reach their full potential. Teaching is all about problem solving in creative ways for me as a teacher. I am deeply committed to seeing others growth and develop their skills so that they become stronger and more confident musicians. I have a passion for music-making and a passion for teaching.

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.
