B.S. Full Sail University, Music Production
I look always look at the best of my students! During lessons, I frequently express my gratitude to the little and big achievements they make. I'm always quick to smile too! I've graduated from Full Sail University's Music Production program which included knowledge of music theory and performance. I love music so much that I actually play five instruments: guitar, bass, drum-set, piano and violin.
Besides teaching music, I do a side job of recording, mixing and mastering people's music. I also compose my own music myself! :)
It all started out as realizing my greatest strengths are being positive and always realizing the potential in people. I wanted to become a teacher so I could maximize my strengths in seeing the best in people. It started out as a friendly way. I first began friends I knew in school that would walk into my house and see the instruments I play. They would ask if they could play it and then next thing you know, I was teaching them how to play. I've taught friends in the past and recently children.
My lessons have a specific flow. Instead of focusing the whole lesson only on a book, I take my time to jump around and make sure the lesson isn't repetitive and boring. We will switch the focus from to warm-ups, to the book, to scales, to chord, etc. I will also frequently express my gratitude and appreciate to you instead of complaining with frustration. I believe finding the correct actions within a student brings out the best in them and motivates them to be the best they can be. Finally, I'm always quick to smile!
I always make sure to appreciate the big and even little accomplishments my students make. I will never complain if a student is not reaching my expectations because I believe complaining only discourages the student. My main goal is to make students realize that learning music is fun and a great experience to have in life. Whether you are doing it as a pastime or as a job, I want to let them know that music is one of the greatest forms of entertainment of all time! At the end of the day, I want to have a teaching style that let's the student know the potential in them.
