ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

Bachelor of Arts, University of Central Florida, Music

Overview:
I am a voice and piano teacher who especially loves working with children.  I graduated in 2009 with my Bachelor's degree in Music, and I have been singing since I was a young child.  I have worked with children of all ages, teaching various subjects, but music is my absolute favorite thing to teach.  I love performing in recitals and events and watching my students develop a love for performance as well.  I hold 2-3 recitals per year to give students a chance to demonstrate what they have been learning, and we have a great time!
EXPERIENCE
I began working with children at the age of 15, working in a daycare.  I immediately knew that I loved working with kids and I continued in that field.  I have worked as a preschool teacher up to a 5th grade teacher.  As music has always been my passion, I pursued a degree in music where I learned piano and studied voice privately.  There I learned many techniques and strategies for teaching others.  Combining my love for children and music led me to begin teaching lessons as part of my degree program.  Since then I have taught private piano and voice lessons to students of many ages and have loved every minute of it!  
METHODS USED
I have my own method of teaching which has worked for every student I have had.  For piano, I begin teaching basic music theory and sight reading from the very first lesson. I typically use "Piano Adventures" method books as a baseline, but tailor the lessons to each student's needs.  For voice, I use a mix of karaoke tracks and light piano accompaniment to help the students learn to sing on their own.  I emphasize proper breathing and healthy technique, especially for young singers whose voices have not yet matured.  I like to give students an idea of what would be beneficial to them and then let them choose their own repertoire based on their musical preferences.  I emphasize consistent practice but in a stress-free way.  One of the most important things is for each student to feel that they are having fun in their learning and also learning things that are important to them.  
LESSON STYLE
The most important part of teaching, for me, is to see my students developing a love for music.  Each student is different and will show their skills/talents in different ways and at different paces.  I am patient to let students grow in their own way while also challenging them to be the best they can be.  I love to laugh with my students and develop a rapport with them that makes them feel comfortable in the lesson environment.  By accomplishing one small goal at a time, every student can be successful.

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.
