About Aisling M.

I am a music teacher, music therapist, singer, pianist, guitarist, and English Teacher. I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Music Therapy from the University of Georgia, with a focus in classical voice, and a minor in TESOL. I am familiar with the online learning environment, having been an online student myself since middle school.

As a Board-Certified Music Therapist, I am experienced in working with a wide range of ages and individuals with a variety of special needs. I love using music to help people work on non-musical goals, but I also have a passion for music itself! Teaching others to discover the soaring feeling of mastering a song is one of my favorite experiences. My approach is focused on making music accessible and attainable to all levels of ability. As a music therapist, I play guitar, piano, ukulele, and percussion on a regular basis, and enjoy trying out other fun instruments on the side, from the tin whistle to the harp. My favorite instrument, though, is the voice! Get ready to make music, and maybe even write your own music with me!*

I am fascinated with language learning, development and teaching. I have studied and participated in research into various music-assisted ESL teaching techniques with children and adults, and am excited to utilize them in my lessons. Also, as a student of the Russian language for over 10 years, I can identify with the struggles of learning another language. I am an empathetic and compassionate language teacher!

Aisling is an amazing teacher! She is very motivating, patient and explains things very well. Within a few days I was comfortable enough to play and sing a whole song in my own and I am now able to pick up new songs a lot quicker. She has taught me some great basic techniques which I’m able to apply to many songs. Although our lessons started in-home, I am looking forward to continuing our lessons online and improving on my techniques even more. Thanks Aisling!

Aisling is a very supportive and enthusiastic teacher. She knows what she is talking about and one can easily tell how much she loves music. She does not hold back on giving compliments and she is almost happier about a succeeding piece than I was myself. She is very easy going which makes it easier to take instructions from her. The lessons were nice and relaxed; something you really want when learning how to play an instrument.
English is not my first language but she made it understandable. And during the lessons there was always room for some laughter and jokes.
I would definitely recommend Aisling as a teacher.

Aisling has been a delightful, dynamic, and polished professional from the start. We asked that she would come once (sometimes twice) a week to give lessons to my nephew who was living with us at the time. Jordan (our nephew) was 2 at the time. I believe it was very helpful and useful for us. Now, Jordan is back in India and is 4 years old. His comprehension of English and all of his locally-spoken languages is incredible. I'd highly recommend her services to everyone.
