I have been teaching guitar, including Classical Guitar, for 23 years. I emphasize the finer points of finger style guitar to achieve the best technique and sound. Also standard music notation for reading music is very important. Classical guitar is a different world than the standard guitar approach, but it is quite fulfilling and enjoyable, although the technique will apply to any finger style song you would like to play!

Vocal Study

We are beautifully and wonderfully made in such a way that certain foundational, physical aspects of singing will help everyone. I teach the foundations for a physiologically correct technique that enhances every style. This has helped all singers, including those who are experiencing discomfort when they sing.

Singing is as natural to me as speaking but I wasn't always this way. That's why I love to help anyone become comfortable or better at expressing themselves through singing. Vocal students of all levels, beginning to advanced, are welcome.

Singing is a very individual thing and I approach each student uniquely. I have multiple experiences and styles to draw from.

I prefer to teach lessons to age 11 & up but will work with younger students if they are ready.

Vocal students can receive music reading training if they desire it, but since 30 minutes is a minimum for developing physical foundational techniques and music selections, lessons would need to be 45 ...

Mary has been extraordinarily effective and professional. Her years of experience is apparent throughout all my lessons with her. I started with basically no knowledge of the music world. I end each class in amazement of how fast I have learned so much.
Sarah
Ms. Mary is such a wonderful teacher! She is so patient and encouraging!
Josue A.
Mrs. Hauck is an excellent piano instructor, she focuses on technique and the historical value of the music she teaches to create greater depth and connection with each lesson. Mrs. Hauck is extremely approachable and sensitive to Andrea’s pace and learning abilities, she explains each lesson thoroughly and I couldn’t be happier to have her as my daughter’s instructor.
Andrea wanted to be part of the review and wrote the below:

I am a student of Mrs. Mary. I have been doing piano with her for over a year. She is very good at explaining the material when I am confused, she takes the time to make sure I know what I am about to play. Mrs. Mary is very patient, she does not get mad or frustrated when I do not play the piano piece correctly, she just tells me to play it again and explains what mistakes I made. Mrs. Mary is very kind and caring. She is a very good piano teacher!

In my flute lessons I like to demonstrate good organizational skills and structure to achieve the program content. Moreover, the psychological component is very important. For instance, in many situations a good teacher obtains the best musical performance from the student after gaining his/her confidence throughout the observance and understanding. Moreover, the success of the teaching process is also based on the selection of technical and musical work materials.

Learning a second language is challenging, but with patience and dedication, it can be the most rewarding thing one can accomplish. I am passionate about teaching and helping others. That is why I earned my master's degree and continue pursuing my English language education.

What makes a successful teacher is the ability to relate to his/her students with empathy, patience, and encouragement. I can connect with my students and understand the challenges and rewards of learning a new language. Being responsible and dedicated, I make sure my teaching style is interactive and efficient, primary seeking the student’s best interests.

About Ilma

I have been teaching for quite a while now, and I strongly believe that everyone has the potential to learn and be successful. English is a universal language, and it is also what is going to make you stand out from the crowd in several areas, especially professionally. It is time to stop procrast

"Miss Angela is a teacher's aide at the middle school where I work. She has a comprehensive understanding of math concepts through college level. She is able to explain and demonstrate difficult concepts in "kid language." She is very kind, patient, and understanding working with her students. She follows up on understanding of concepts.
She is thorough and dependable. She is a pleasure to work with and always has a positive attitude. I would recommend Angela as a math or Chinese language teacher for all levels of students."

Creative Writing: Not That Different from Academic Writing?
