EXPERIENCE
My teaching career started while I was performing in Philadelphia. There was a need for music teachers in the area, so I accepted an invitation to teach to children of El Taller Puertorriqueño. What a satisfaction to see my students grow and understand the beauty of music! That was a motivation and still is today! Since then, the passion for teaching grew in me with my performing career. I moved to different states and every time I looked for venues to teach. Now, I am in Florida with the same enthusiasm and love for teaching.
METHODS USED
There are different publishers that I use. Depending on the age, personality, age and interests of the students. It can vary; either Bastien, John Thompson, Alfred Publishing, Hal Leonard or any other I find appropriate. In a beginners face I explain notation values, names, posture and what affects their learning. Depending on the age of the student I decide if the material is suitable for their capacity of learning. We do different level and If I see that the student is a fast learner I upgrade them to an adult book.
LESSON STYLE
I try to create a relaxed, fun, trustworthy and focused, environment for the student. I like to ask them what’s interesting and appealing to them, then we start the lesson. When I teach at my studio and children come directly from school I give them a snack if they haven’t had any. Children cannot concentrate if they are hungry. We play musical games for the younger ones, so they can internalize either the beats or the values of the notation. A fun and relax environment is very inviting to achieve their goals.

I am having fun! Not afraid to go to my lessons. I am being challenged, corrected and supported in my learning. Minnie is an amazing teacher for me, she gives me time and space to learn.

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.
