Overview:

I am a music teacher who is very passionate about imparting knowledge and sharing music with my students. I have been teaching music theory, solfeggio, voice, counterpoint and choral conducting. I graduated with three degrees in music, namely Bachelor of Music in Music Education, Bachelor of Music in Voice, Bachelor of Music in Conducting. I also have received Cum Laude for the three aforementioned degrees (2009, 2010, 2011). All of my students have become professionals themselves and are teaching and performing at the same time.

EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience started in 2002 when I enrolled at the Conservatory of Music. Initially, I accepted private students in my home whose age ranged from 12 to 50 years years old. Then, after some time I decided to join the YMCA Music Department in Manila, Philippines. Since then, I have regularly taught students at home and at the YMCA studio. When I graduated, I started teaching music in the College of Music for students majoring in Voice and Choral Conducting. I always have encouraged my students to do regular practices and lessons and found that my teaching method has always been motivating both to me and my students. I even encouraged them to join regular recitals and even enter competitions to help them gauge themselves how far they have gone and to give them sense of accomplishments. I'm always looking forward to having lessons with my students.

METHODS USED

For any students, my method has always been consistent with all types of music. I always ask my students to know what type of music they are most interested in performing, so that I can help them better by giving them lessons that will surely have them perform with ease. In general, after I get to know my students, I help them read notes. And as we progress, I help them study some vocalises and Italian songs for beginners. From this, I help them build repertoire that is worthy of showcasing them in a recital and probably graded examinations like the ABSRM.

LESSON STYLE

It has always been my joy when I see my students later on perform music that they love. Thus, I as a music teacher, would be more than willing to help my students sing and make music at their own level and eventually climbs up the musical ladder. To do this, setting standards and specific and realistic objectives are a must. During the process, regular assessments are done so that students know their accomplishments and feel more comfortable making music. My teaching style is always dependent and designed to be in congruence with what students can do, what level they are in, what they actually need and what they what to accomplish.
