Having completed my B.A. at Florida International University with an English Major and Education Minor, specializing in early education and elementary music instruction, I have spent time in the last couple years working with younger students and studying instructional techniques for reaching younger ages as well as students with special needs. However, I still feel equally comfortable teaching both children, teenagers, and adults with a fun and personalized approach to learning music and mastering instruments.
Throughout my lessons, I also offer helpful insights into the challenges and benefits of today's rapidly growing community of local musicians by providing my students with useful insights that can help to refine their musical ambition and overall goals while also identifying and addressing any factors that may present an issue in their long-term music goals and ventures. As a member of several local bands, I'm eager to offer a very useful insight into the social dynamics within a band and a better understanding of the elements that are conducive to healthy and long-standing friendships amongst band members.
The first instrument I learned formally was piano and after realizing that my interests weren't in line with the music styles in the lessons assigned to me, I eventually switched to guitar and began applying the basic musical concepts I previously learned on piano. Having endured the common frustration of being taught music that didn't match my interests, I've come to value the importance of a customized learning experience that effectively bridges the songs and styles that students are excited to learn with the fundamentals required to attain the goal of becoming a well-rounded musician.
