Hello! I am Brooke Shoup and I have been working with international students for the last five years. Together we have worked on conversational English, cultural understanding, and I will also work through papers and assignments with my students as well.
I love to learn and meet new people, and have often become long lasting friends with my international students coming from China, Japan, South Korea, and Saudi Arabia!
- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I believe that making music should be a fun and creative experience. I specialize in teaching piano functionally which means helping you to learn the type of music you want to play as quickly as possible while giving you the tools to add your own style to a piece.
When a new student is learning music, it is most important to establish a love of the instrument in order to see results. This is made possible by teaching music theory, sight reading, technique, and ear training led by the student's natural interests. I have over ten years of experience working with kids across a variety of settings with one year experience in special needs and four years working in music composition and performance.
Please let me know if you have any questions, I'd be happy to speak with you!
Brooke was both warn and knowledgeable. My daughter not only learned new piano skills but even more importantly, is now super excited to learn and practices all the time on her own. Thank you Brooke!
