Overview:
My name is Madeleine and I am a music major at Salisbury University, currently going into my senior year. I have been a dedicated musician for over ten years, and teaching has always been my passion. My specialties are cello, Irish fiddle, violin, and viola. In high school, I was part of the Harford Youth Orchestra and the All County Orchestra. I have had the honour of performing with several major orchestras in Maryland, including the Susquehanna Symphony Orchestra and Salisbury Symphony Orchestra. 
EXPERIENCE
I have been teaching for six years, giving lessons at my home to students aging from 6 to 40. In addition to private lessons, I have worked as an assistant coach to the Harford String Orchestra, a youth orchestra for gifted middle school students. As a teacher, my goal is to share my passion and love of music, by combining classical music with music my students are interested in. This has proven to form a compromise with students, making lessons and practicing more appealing, especially for younger students interested in playing music they are already familiar with. When I was a younger student, I participated in numerous youth orchestras, masterclasses, and competitions. This helped me form friendships and connections with other musicians, and I always push my students to do the same, giving them dates for varying musical events they would be able to participate in. 
METHODS USED
My beginning students usually start with the Suzuki method. However, if a student is using a different book with their school music teacher, I always try to incorporate that book in my student's private lessons. In addition, I ask students what they are interested in playing, to give the student a sense of ownership and signifigance in their progress. With adults I am more open to suggestions and requests, basing their lessons more on their interest as well as their progress. My main goal is always to have my students enjoy themselves and bring them to their full potential as progressing and maturing musicians. 
LESSON STYLE
Helping a student reach their musical aspirations and developing their love of music has always been my mission. I help students set goals for themselves, and guide them to those goals through music I choose and music the students are interested in, which I sometimes let the students choose themselves. When a student reaches a goal, it gives them a sense of accomplishment and encourage them to progress even further in their musical journey.

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.
