I recently graduated with a Bachelor's in Music from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Peck School of the Arts. I honed my craft of private teaching and also specializing in Balkan folk works, arranged for flute and secondary woodwinds. I plan to extend these endeavors, particularly my "infectious" personality towards students, as my former instructor Dr. Clippert exclaims. I am equally comfortable on the concert stage and gig floor, as I am in classroom and studio. My studio experience and space are convenient for a beginner, as well as an adult!
I began teaching privately in the greater Milwaukee area in 2012. With my help and motivation, a fifth grader decided to keep his flute and play in his beginning band, despite his families' circumstances. Later, I picked up an interested eighth grader, who eventually received a Gold at regional solo contest and also made the all-state band. Motivation and and upbeat attitude have continued to yield personal and academic results in my studio. Constructive criticism, patience, and being able to "fit in my students' shoes" are all perks of studying with me.
My materials and methods differ depending on the pupil's age/ability. For a young 11 year old beginner, homework assignments will begin with the instrument itself, and then eventually Book One of any method book desired. Popular practice dictates good results with books like Yamaha and Standard of Excellence. For middle-level ability (middle school / early high school), the Rubank series is perfect. Finally, with middle and above levels; solos, ensemble work, duets, and additional etude books will be used.
With the current economic climate for public and private education, the demand for superb teachers is at an all-time high. I truly believe this is my calling and highest skill set. My perseverance and passion utilized throughout my personal education will prove excellent results in the studio. I will treat each student as an individual instead of just another number!
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.
