Thank you for taking the time and looking at my profile. Together, let's fulfill all of your needs.
My musical experience began at the age of 4 on the piano. I have been classically trained for most of my life. I have performed on soundtracks, played with bands (in genres from Jazz to Metal), and accompanied choirs. I have taught intro to piano and music theory since the age of 15. Currently, I am a studio manager at a recording studio in Arlington, TX where I help artists convert their music into broadcast quality as well as write music for Television and Film.
I see music as a language. Once it is mastered, it can be shared with anyone, anywhere. My goal as an instructor is to provide my students with an opportunity to discover their own musical potentials. From breaking the ice from playing for the very first time, to perfecting even the most structured classical piece, I feel there are no limits. I feel comfortable teaching classical and pop, hard rock/metal, and even music theory. In my lessons, I highlight important principles right from the start, such as posture, proper fingering, and rhythm training, to ensure no bad habits form that later are hard to break. As we become more confident in our playing, we transfer some of the traits contained within us. Those traits become the character and style of our "musical speech," which will help to define us as musicians. Remember that it is fine to speak music with accent--after all, some players' accents are the very thing we enjoy about music itself! I hope to connect with you as we embark down a long road together!
Additionally to music, I teach science in the subjects of Chemistry, Biology, Anatomy and Physiology. I have my 200 hr yoga teaching certification and teach private class to aid people in living a healthy, fulfilling life.
I have taught piano and vocal lessons primarily to different students from ages 7 to 46. In my classes, I let my students show me what they want to learn. Then we come up with the class together. This method helps provide a way for the students to get familiar with which music in a way that is both inspiring and will keep them motivated to continue. I bring in music theory with or without sheet music, depending on my students choice. I can teach anything from classical to heavy metal.
I taught chemistry, biology, and anatomy and physiology to high school students. I would create lessons for all of my students and work with them in having a greater understanding of the material through coursework and labs. I would incorporate a great deal of hands on learning and try and bring in outside resources and examples as often as possible.
