Libby has many experiences in the music world, and brings this to her teaching. I studied flute at WSU l year, UW l year 2 years with Wendy Wilhelmy, and 7 years with Trudy Antolin. I studied piano as a child, l year at WSU, l year at MSM and 3 months with Olga Sukhover in Seattle l year studyiing piano at UW I played flute in the Issaquah Chamber Orchestra, the UW Band, and Clarinet with Ballard Civic Orchestra (Latino) and with Seattle Symphonic Band I studied clarinet at Northwestern, Manhattan School of music, and University of Washington, and WSU. I lived for 6 weeks in Europe playing at music festivals, I toured Washington State playing at festivals with a band--Cornucopia, and an Octoberfest band. In Europe I played with Orchestras and chamber music groups. I lived for 5 years in Pullman WA playing music \w my boyfriend (a trumpet player) 2 years in NYC freelancing, 2 years in metro Chicago, and now I make my home in Seattle where I play in groups, and teach music...
Libby has a variety of styles, and methods appropriate for, or that the student will like according to his/her interests. I tell students about various brands and styles of the instrument, and products.. I use music books that the students can buy at the music store. Then I find other music at the student's level that will help them progress to a new level, or stay at the same level if they so desire. I usually check with their school music teacher to see what is expected of their progress in music.
Often lesson styles are easy going to serve the interests of beginning students, and more demanding for advanced students. Libby writes out lesson plans for all her students according to what she and the student think is appropriate for the student's present acheivement. Libby presents sections on rhythm, tone, reeds-how to adjust them, how to make them etc--she finds music that she thinks the student will like after discussing it with the student. Libby also tries to find music that will spur on the student's musical growth.
We have been very pleased with Libby. My daughter is enjoying and learning a lot from Libby.
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
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
