I am a music therapist and instructor and I truly love it. I treat the educative setting much like the therapy setting: fostering an atmosphere of creativity, support, relaxation and fun. I don't put any pressure on my students. I take their lead in terms of how fast they want to go, how much material they want to cover, and how much practicing they want to do at home. I know from experience that as time goes on, practicing will become a pleasure and not a chore.
As a voice teacher, I want to help my students settle comfortably into their own musicality by showing them the building blocks of a solid technique, drawing particularly from the things that helped me grow as a vocalist. I want my students to feel strong in their body, comfortable and relaxed in their breath, and confident in their performance.
This may sound strange to some, but I LOVE teaching music theory. Theory is such an important component for anyone who is serious about learning music. It opens so many doors...
