-Current Texas teaching certificate -Trained on Roland digital piano technology
I have been living, teaching, and performing music in Austin for the last 8 years. I sing and play guitar with Sara Shansky and the Titanic Dance Band. I grew up in Rhode Island, went to Tufts University for my bachelors degree, and spent a few years on the west coast playing music and falling in love. My husband and I just had our first baby in August of 2012 and I'm sure he will be a music lover too!
Over 20 years experience performing, and teaching voice, piano, and guitar.
For younger beginners on piano I use the Hal Leonard series to start. For older piano students I use Faber & Faber.
For guitar and voice, I base my method on the students' interest. I feel that for a student to be successful and enjoy the instrument they are learning, they need to be learning a style that excites them.
I keep my lessons very relaxed. I want the student to feel comfortable. This does not mean, however, that I do not hold high expectations for my students. I hold the students responsible for their own progress. If they don't practice, they do not improve. I make sure they and their parents (if applicable) know exactly what they should be working on each week, as well as areas that need improvement.
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.
