- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
- August 2005
I am a passionate educator, no matter what subject I happen to find myself teaching. There is nothing quite so rewarding as the dawning comprehension of a new skill on a child's face, or their look of triumph after a great accomplishment.
As a teacher, i prefer not to be overly demanding of my students, and instead seek to tailor lessons to their individual interests and tastes. If you enjoy the music, you will want to play, and thus practice more! I prefer to focus on teaching the underlying skills and techniques that will make students successful - practice strategies, sight-reading, and problem solving skills.
I have taught private lessons to students of all ages for many years, but officially established a "studio" in 2017. My specialty is beginning and intermediate students.
I have been teaching and learning to teach flute for 11 years. I actually began by volunteering my time as an 8th grader to help incoming 6th graders learn the basics of flute. Eventually I took charge of those 6th graders, and now, 11 years later I have been teaching with MFSOM and in my own private studio for 5 years!
MFSOM is a non-profit organization in the Green Bay, WI area that believes in offering everyone the opportunity to make music at a high level of quality. I wholeheartedly support that mission by emphasizing healthy practice techniques for my students. That means giving them all of the tools to learn and grow on their own as musicians, with me there to simply help hone their abilities and assist where they need it.
I was the band director for the 7th grade band classes and assisted with private lessons for grades 6-8.
i substituted for the Middle School band director while she was on maternity leave. I was responsible for teaching all band and general music classes for grades 5-8, including 3 bands, 7 general music classes, and lessons for all band students.
I am authorized to substitute teach in multiple school districts throughout Northeast Wisconsin.
I am a new student and she has given me all the right tools to have a great start. She doesn't waste even a minute of the class time.
