I'm a passionate and motivated teacher who loves to work with students and share my love of music. I will be graduating from The Juilliard School with a Bachelors in Music this May! Playing an instrument has opened so many doors for me and I would love to share that with my students. Ive had the opportunities to play in some of the greatest halls around the world including Carnegie Hall, David Geffen Hall, Alice Tully Hall, as well as the Walt Disney Hall in Los Angeles. I have had the opportunity to travel with a Brass quintet to Beijing and Shanghai as well as all over the United States. I look forward to sharing my love of music with you!
I started teaching when I moved to New York City for School. Teaching lessons has been very rewarding and I have seen my students grow tremendous amounts in music. I have taught all ages and have a different curriculum for different age groups. One of the main points I like to focus on is how playing music is fun and can be a tool to express ourselves. If a student isn't having fun in their lessons, then i'm not doing my job! I like to challenge my students to enter competitions and write their own music. I also like to host a student recital whenever possible! I'm looking forward to teaching you!
I am very flexible on my teaching methods. My methods really differ for each student and their needs and wants. It is important to teach 10 year olds and 30 year olds differently! I like to make the trumpet fun, because that is what music is all about right? For beginners we might work on songs they may know and find fun and can tell their friends about at school. For adults I would do the same but make it more difficult and go further into what they may want to learn. I truly believe you can learn the best if you tailor it to your learning style.
Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a students desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs. I am so excited to work with you!
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.
