My teaching experience dates back to my college days in Toronto, where I started teaching privately. I started teaching part-time about 5 years ago, and have been consistently teaching since. I am fortunate that I get to work with a lot of young kids, and get to introduce them to the world of music and help them develop their passion early on. Teaching is a great source of energy for me. It inspires me to not only become a better teacher and a violinist, but also a better person. Besides teaching privately, and Musika Lessons, Milena is also delighted to be a part of faculty at Capitol Hill Day School, Westminster School in Annandale, and Prelude ensemble in Arlington, VA

Hi! I am a 2014 Bachelor of Music graduate from the University of Maryland College Park. Originally from Glen Burnie, I have been performing in the Baltimore/College Park/D.C. Metro area for the last several years. Since graduating, I have been teaching private violin lessons at Music & Arts in Oxon Hill and Rockville as well as in College Park and Silver Spring. I also have experience in instrument repair and maintenance while working at Gailes’ Violin Shop. Outside of music, I enjoy reading, writing, personal development, and learning/teaching Spanish/English.

I have been teaching private lessons for 10 years. Encouraging students to practice regularly and to have fun with their instrument is essential for the learning process. I stress the importance of these two things so that the student may develop a love for music and their instrument of choice. Also, being able to teach a variety of musical styles keeps students wanting to learn. I encourage students to not only learn written pieces, but to create their own music and individual sound. I also suggest just listening to music. This is the best for just wanting to learn and play popular as well as unpopular songs.

Instruments:

I generally use the Alfred series for teaching piano. For teaching voice I may use a combination of books based on what style of music the student wants to focus on the most. For guitar, violin and clarinet, I use typical beginner books that introduce the fundamental fingerings, chords and notes for that particular instrument as well as basic music terminology. In addition, I sometimes create some of my own unique exercises and materials to supplement these books based on the student's needs.

Currently, I teach at at an elementary school in Palm Beach County. (Florida Public Schools) I am teaching ages k-5 general music, chorus, and band. The instruments I teach weekly include trumpets, violins, flutes, keyboards, piano, guitar, and bass. When I student taught high school teachers at the Boston Latin School, (Boston Public Schools) I taught chorus, string ensembles, AP music theory and all ensemble instruments in every family. Before formally teaching, I was a private composition and music theory tutor for college peers. Finally I began my childcare career as a camp counselor and worked with Bar-T for eight years. I am proud of all students I have helped perform, create and compete.
