MBA, Belmont University, Music Business BS, Michigan State University, Zoology and Flute Performance
I am an enthusiastic instructor who loves sharing my passion for music. I have studied and performed music for 18 years and have been teaching for the past 6 years. I have studied at Michigan State University and Belmont University and have found teaching music to be incredibly rewarding.
I began teaching as a college student, conducting workshops at high schools. I then began to teach on an individual basis, and instructed students of all ages and abilities. Through these experiences, I found joy in teaching and love having fun with my students. I learned the best way to motivate my students was by making my lessons as fun, education and enjoyable as possible.
For all students I try to incorporate all elements of music by including appropriate amounts music history and theory into my lessons. For beginners, I tend to utilize Trevor Wye exercises, and slowly incorporate small musical pieces. Although tedious, I believe that scales and etudes make students technically and musically proficient. I therefore include them in my lessons, but ensure the students are gaining the benefit of these exercises. I like to approach lessons from a wholistic standpoint, putting an emphasis on a student's posture, breathing and attitude.
I like to set goals with my students, so they are self motivated and to ensure the goals are ambitious. I like to incorporate humor and games into my lessons that strengthen the student's interest and ability. I acknowledge my student's strengths and encourage them to continue to improve in other areas.
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
