I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. In May 2018 I graduated from Augusta University and Georgia State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in vocal performance. Performing all over the world in various operas has been one of my Greater Life Experiences as a musician I've recently just performed in Shanghai, China and Beijing, China as well as Italy, Austria, and Germany. I've also had the opportunity to be a semi-finalist for the National Association of teachers singing, as well as participating in a world peace movement located in Croatia.
My teaching experience dates back to my high school days however not in music but traditional indian dance and Indian classical singing. However I have been giving piano lessons and american pop, musical theater, and opera lessons since 3 years ago. I've also found that a combination of classical and modern music can go a long way in helping students enjoy their voice and piano motivating them to practice and continue to learn. I'm always looking to bring on new students of all ages. If a student isn't having any fun or learning in their lessons then I'm not doing my job!
For the beginning students who are children or adult beginners I typically start with the basic fundamentals. Once the student has progressed or has a grasp of the fundamentals I begin to introduce solo repertoire that is appropriate for their first performance in front of their friends and family or a recital which they would like to perform in. I also try to find out what the student is interested in and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons engaging and fun no matter their ability level. I usually have my own set of curriculum for each student that is unique to their own abilities.
Nothing is more rewarding than seeing each student progress and have a passion for music. It's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I encourage this by settling realistic goals for my students at each lesson. I'm a perfectionist at heart so naturally I want my students to do as well as they can. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a student's desire to progress making them wanting to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student I can successfully heed to their wants and needs. My teaching style is somewhat based on a step-by-step. I do not like to do random bursts of trial by error methods. I do have my own curriculum that I set, and occasionally if I feel that a certain method isn't working I'll bring in a different method. In the end, it's all up to what the student wants and how we can make his or her wants a benefit to their learning process.
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.
