Hello! My name is Taylor and I am a current graduate student at SFCM, focusing on the study of viola performance. I adore teaching people of all ages and skill levels, and I am passionate and determined to help my students grow to love and learn music even more than they already do. Regarding my instruments, I have been playing violin for eleven years, and I have been playing viola for five years. I have had private instruction in both of those instruments. I also have intermediate skills and knowledge in cello, percussion, and marimba/vibraphone/xylophone. I have been a freelance violin, viola, music theory, and math instructor for six years, and I have experience teaching children below the age of 10, including special needs children.
In regards to math, I have studied through calculus and have applied it to AP Physics.

Experience

Music Instructor
Jun 2016 - Aug 2019

Huntington Beach School of Music (Formerly Concert Music School)

At HBSM, I was a strings and piano instructor, specializing in the education of children under the age of ten, focusing around the age of five. For every student, I was expected to create a lesson plan to help guide them in learning proper positioning, technique, and musicality. Along with this, I would incorporate songs and pieces that the students would want to play, if they ever had a request. I quit due to personal relocation for educational purposes.

Middle School Strings Coach
Jul 2018 - Jul 2019

East Whittier Middle School

During my time at EWMS, I was a summer strings coach for the orchestra, mainly focusing on the violin and viola sections. During these classes, I would create personalized lesson plans for each student, lead sectionals, and guide students in learning proper positioning, technique, and musicality. I quit due to personal relocation for educational purposes.

High School Strings Instructor
Aug 2018 - Jun 2019

Villa Park High School

During my time as an instructor at VPHS, I directed the school's string orchestra class, which included preparing the class for their concerts (two large concerts and four community concerts), conducting rehearsals two times a week, overseeing students run sectionals with occasional input, repairing instruments, creating weekly lesson plans, arranging music and bowings, and doing student paperwork. I quit due to personal relocation for educational purposes.

Music Instructor
Aug 2016 - Jul 2017

Music Town (no longer in service)

I was in charge of teaching children ages five and above proper technique and playing ability in violin, viola, cello, and piano. I created personalized lesson plans for each student I had, and I would include song requests into said plans, if the student had any. I quit due to owner's malpractice.
