I'm a pasionate and hard working violinist and teacher who is always striving for the best from myself and my students. I am currently in the second year of my Masters in Violin Performance at Texas State University. In addition to my scholarly duties, I am also a member of the Graduate String quartet at Texas State. Chamber music is a passion of mine and it is my hope that each of my students will find something that they can be passionate about.
I began teaching lessons six years ago as a course requirement for one of my pedogogy classes. I quickly fell in love teaching and have since then strived to improve myself to be best teacher I can be.
I like to tailor my teaching methods to each individual student. I know from taking lessons myself that no two violinist are alike, and it would be silly to teach as if they were. For my younger students, I really like to focus on the fundamentals of violin technique so that they can have a firm foundation on which they can improve. I also try to include music theory and music history into my lessons so that a student leaves each lesson not only as a better violinist, but as a better overall musician.
I am a passionate teacher who likes to have fun in lessons! My main goal as a teacher is to inspire my students to be the best they can be. I have found that the teachers that inspire me the most are the ones that I can laugh with or ask questions without the feeling of being talked down to. I want my students to ask musical questions and search for answers so that we can have active musical dialogue in our lessons. I also like to give listening assignments during the week to help students become better active listeners. Overall, I want my students to walk away from each lesson excited with the possibilities music can bring them.
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.
