Lesson Details

Chemistry

Levels Taught:
Elementary, Middle School, High School, College
When most people think of chemistry, they usually think of that really hard class they took in either high school or college, and immediately begin frowning. Then when the world chemical comes up, it doesn't get much better as they think usually of poisons or toxins.

I love teaching people that chemicals make up everything in our world, even the most beautiful parts of it. From humans, to flowers, to the food we eat, it is all chemistry.

I always try and go beyond my lessons and show how the theories are more understandable when we put them into the concepts of our daily lives. We grow to appreciate this very challenging subject more when we begin to see for ourselves.

I bring a lot of outside resources and examples that hopefully make it a fun and well rounded experience for each of my students.

Teaching since:
January 2009

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 teach throughout the Dallas metroplex, play in several bands, 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 and difficult pieces, I feel there are no limits. I feel comfortable teaching in any genre and always tailor my classes to match my students own individual learning style. 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. I recommend books and provide sheet music when we start learning songs. Learning music with me has been said by many of my students as, "the most fun they have ever had playing music."

In addition 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.

Thanks again for reading my profile. Hope to meet you soon.

Experience

Music Teacher
May 2016 - Present
Private Lessons

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.

Science Teacher
Feb 2013 - Dec 2013
Pointe Schools

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.

First lesson went great. Miss Melody was prompt, professional, and kind. Listening in she seems very competent to instruct. My 10 year old was pleased.

I signed up with Melody for something unique - learning to speak from my diaphragm and speak with more bravado and projection. I've always been frustrated by how my voice goes out if I speak loudly in a crowded room.

She took me through different exercises she's borrowed from her singing lessons and applied it to my specific case. I have a much better idea of how my voice should sound and where the sound should come from. Although I still revert back to my old ways, I recognize it and from here on out it's about me actively trying to improve it with the skills provided to me.

Here is my fake 5 star review that looks like a child's writing review because I have bad punctuation and run-on sentences but rest assured this is a student not an instructor trying to plump up my own reviews!Thank you teacher. Signed another funky spelling of a 1st name.

Melody was an energetic and patient instructor. She taught me each yoga position and positioned me in the correct pose if I was out of balance. I highly recommend her if you are considering yoga!
