Overview:

I am a singer, songwriter, and musician who is passionate about passing on the joy and beauty of music to others. I am graduating in May 2019 from University of Northwestern-St. Paul with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Worship Arts. Over the years I have performed with choirs in Europe and New York City, performed in orchestras and concert bands, and have been performing my original music in Omaha at various venues since 2015. I am currently completing a worship internship at Citylight Benson Church in Omaha, NE and teaching lessons at the 402 Arts Collective.

EXPERIENCE

I have taken private guitar and piano lessons since 2003 and have implemented a lot of the styles I was exposed to in the teaching that I have done since 2017. I typically travel to my students' homes, but I have space to teach in my apartment studio as well. Music is one of the greatest gifts we are able to hold in this life and I want to make sure that each one of my students gets to experience it in the deep and meaningful ways that I have. Balancing between discipline and having fun is essential when I am teaching my students. I hope to bring the joy of music to students of all ages!

METHODS USED

For students who already have the groundwork of the instrument, I typically move forward with whatever they are interested in learning and what would make them feel more accomplished. For beginner students, I typically start them out in the Fast Track Guitar 1 book just to get them comfortable with the instrument, proper technique, basic music theory, etc. Additionally, I always implement scales into the lessons, no matter the age or skill level. But no matter what, I consistently check with the student to hear what they are wanting to learn, keeping them inspired and having fun.

LESSON STYLE

I always want my students to have a very positive experience taking lessons and never to feel as if there is too much pressure put on them. Every student is different so I don't have a specific teaching formula. I always ensure that the student is moving at a comfortable pace for them while still being challenged and learning new things. I am always quick to acknowledge every small bit of progress that they make and focus on the positives rather than the negatives. As I get to know the student more I am able to shape my teaching around what will cause them to succeed.

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
