Hey Guys, I'm a very enthusiastic person with a passion for teaching and love for knowledge. I graduate from NMSU with my BM in music performance in 2010.

I have been playing viola for almost 20 years and each day I grow more and more passionate for my instrument. I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and began my musical studies on viola at the age 4. I graduated from Baylor University in 2013. While at Baylor University I was Principal of the Baylor Symphony and played with the Waco Symphony, Brazos Valley Symphony, and the San Angelo Symphony orchestras. I now attend the University of Maryland pursing my Masters degree in Viola Performance.

One of the many advantages to private instruction, and what makes me so passionate about it, is that each student can move at their own speed. Private lessons should be tailored to the individual, so that the student can form a solid foundation. I believe in teaching students with encouragement, and creating a positive learning environment. It is important to me that my students know I believe in them. I discuss goals and progress with my students. I often ask them if they are ready to move on, or if they want to spend more time working on specific pieces or exercises. This helps them become more confident in their skill, and keeps them from feeling overwhelmed.

My teaching experience started several years ago when I was in high school. I was given the opportunity to teach some young beginning string players and I found that I really enjoyed seeing them develop and took great pride in their progress. I then went to college as a string player and played in multiple orchestras and took part in recitals nearly weekly during my time there. After college I started teaching private string lessons at a local music store. I had around 20 students I taught on a weekly basis ranging from the ages of 4 to 60; the majority being on the younger side. However, I think it’s never too late to learn an instrument! I am now an Orchestra Director at a local high school and teach privately as well. I love what I do and want to share my passion for music and the pride that comes with the mastery of an instrument with others.

Instruments:

I have been playing violin for more than a decade. I began teaching violin three years ago at the same music school I started my own studies in. I started as a summer chamber councilor and then began teaching students as a private instructor. I use mainly the Suzuki method, and other non-traditional methods. My goal is to have my students progress in their instrument, and not only gain important skills, but also grow to love music!

You can jot down each section on a piece of paper in whatever shorthand you’d like, but eventually you want to get away from reading. Most songs have a simple pop/rock form: intro, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, interlude, verse, chorus, chorus, outro. “Born to Run” is slightly more complicated: intro, verse, ‘B’ section, intro, verse, ...
