I love working with both kids and adults of all ages. I especially enjoy watching them learn and grow as students. I graduated in May of 2018 from San Jacinto College - Central Campus with my associates degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis in music. In addition to sharing my love of music with others. I also love to play my own music and covers of songs in my spare time. I am currently on break from attending University of St. Thomas and pursuing my bachelor's degree in music education. After I complete my bachelor's degree, I want to obtain my Master's in music therapy. I want to help people that have Alzheimer's disease, depression, PTSD, selective mutism, and autism. I believe music has the power to cultivate change and healing.
I started teaching piano and voice lessons quite recently within the last year. I have had the rewarding experience of watching these young people learn and grow and discover more of their self confidence in performance as well as in life. I think a key point for any teacher is to be patient. The more relaxed you are the more at ease your students will be. It is important to be patient with yourself as the teacher in addition to being very patient with the student. Also, it is important to be understanding with your students. I've learned over the short time that I have started teaching that sometimes your student will come in unprepared for a lesson, and/or they have been sick, etc. It's important that students feel loved and heard.
I like to create lesson plans around what kind of music the student wants to learn. For example, most young girls want to learn Disney princess songs. So I print them off their own copies of the songs that they had expressed an interest in learning. I feel like if the student is not interested in playing or singing the music that I am giving them it could be the best curriculum in the world, but it won't help them learn if they are not actively engaged in the music they are singing or playing. I would most definitely use method books for piano and voice if needed.
I love teaching music! But, what's more, I throughly enjoy sharing the gift of music with my students. I believe that passion fuels action. If I want my students to be actively engaged in the learning process. I have to do my part as the teacher and involve the student in the music choosing process, before I can involve them in the music making process. If my students are clearly not passionate about the song that we are working on together in lessons. We are not going to get very much done. But, if my students loves the songs they are working on in lessons and they are passionate about it. Then, we can do a lot more.
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.
