I am a voice, piano, and guitar teacher. I prefer to teach in an easygoing, but precise manner and try to adapt to all my students’ needs. I’ve been in love with music since I was a kid, singing along to everything I could. I studied music in college and graduated in 2012, then started teaching privately in January of 2014. Along with the act of teaching and the enjoyment of music, I’m a huge fan of tasty food, learning new things, and exploring the world around me. I love to experience wonder and try to communicate that to others.
I started teaching in January of 2014 and haven’t stopped since. In the almost 4 years I’ve been doing this, I’ve enjoyed growing and developing as both a teacher and musician. I work with children and teenagers almost every day and have learned to adapt my teaching style to each student’s individual learning styles. I’ve taught in multiple settings, including privately, group lessons, as part of a studio, and in a church setting with both an adult choir and children’s choir. I look forward to helping you learn your instrument.
The methods I use change depending on the student, but generally, I use the following: - Piano: start with Alfred’s (suited for age/proficiency), then choose a specialty (improvising, classical, pop, etc) - Guitar: start with Hal Leonard (for note reading), then choose a specialty (jazz, pop, classical, flamenco, etc) - Voice: because of the nature of the human voice, I don’t use a book, but rather teach principles and methods to use during practice and performance Regardless of the instrument, I hope to help you improve as much as I can.
As I mentioned before, my teaching style can best be described as “easygoing, but precise and adapted to each student’s needs.” I focus on the person trying to learn as much as on the learning itself. Yet, I’m not demanding or harsh in my delivery or expectations. Rather than a standard, vanilla approach, I try learn my student’s personality, learning style, and sense of humor pretty quickly and work to adapt the facts and knowledge of music to each student as an individual human, not an appointment.
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.
