Voice methodology is to learn how to make the correct sound on the flow of breath.  One must learn how to breath whether singing loudly or softly in whichever style or genre the student wants to learn. String playing can be hard on the ears when beginning, therefore it is important to develop a good bow technique in order to make the best sound possible.  I use the All For Strings method books. Begining piano is fun and I teach out of the book as well as how to learn the beginnings of improvising.  I use the Alfred Piano Library books for the children and adult players.

I've been teaching various instruments privately for about eight years.  In my current teaching position at the elementary level, I teach classroom music incorporating choral literature, performing on the Handbells, Song Flute and Soprano Recorder.  At the middle school level, I instruct small group lessons and conduct band.  The student population is very diverse from general education students to ones that are on the Autism Spectrum.  In past positions, I have taught other areas of music such as strings and piano.

I began teaching about five years ago at student's homes in New York. My Main focus is teaching young children. I encourage learning music theory, sight-reading and developing a style of performing, or just playing the violin as a hobby.

Every student I have is a different person, speaking both mentally and physically.  A cookie cutter mold does not work for everyone, although everyone does need to be taught the same building blocks.  My job is to try and make a connection with each student and find what makes them drive to learn and do more.  Reminders of growth and progress are equally as important in times when skills are challenging or do not develop as quickly as the student would like.  I have had to juggle up to 100 students in a room each learning differently, which truly informs my one-on-one style of personalized engagement.

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.
