I tailor lessons to meet each individual's needs and learning styles/abilities. I use method books along with popular music methods and let the student pick music they like to go along with it. Lessons include harmonization, ear training, transposing, improvisation, and multi-sensory learning. I believe in positive encouragement, patience and a supportive environment to help build student's confidence as they learn.
Also, I specialize in helping students that are especially nervous about taking lessons. The studio I taught at often recommended me for students that were afraid, more sensitive or shy with lessons.
I believe teachers should always be learning as well. I study, research, attend seminars and look for new ways and methods to improve lessons and grow as a teacher.
Would love to help bring the joy of making your own music in the moment to you!
