I come from the greater Modesto, CA area. I am a veteran music teacher with over 19 years of teaching vocal and instrumental music. I have taught both in the private and public sectors.
I hold a current music teaching certificate with a BA in Music Education, MA in Elementary Education, and an MA in Reading/Music Focus.

I am a classical and traditional music teacher with many new contemporary styles of teaching music.
My atmosphere of teaching is fun and nurturing!
*** Lesson Details ***
For online lessons, I am currently only teaching Guitar, Voice, Ukulele, Trumpet, and Clarinet.
Lessons are weekly or bi-weekly with a structure lesson, musical games to teach reinforcement and new concepts. I structure my music lessons according to the learning style of each of my students. Patience and understanding my students helps them in their success!
So, there is a lot of praise and encouragement in each lesson. Once a month there is music history that is taught with the lesson and music theory is included in each music lesson.
With each lesson book, there are weekly practice sheets to document daily and weekly practice. Practice is one of the most important keys to learning music. Each student is encouraged to learn one song or musical concept at their own pace.
Every week, I assess each student as they play for me their musical work. I don't expect perfection, but strive for excellence!

Great room w/ baby grand piano and seating for parents
*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide assorted music books for piano, guitar, and band.

Kyle was able to take me from sounding like a lower octave version of Jack Benny (a mid-20th century comedian famous for his howlingly horrid violin playing) to a level where I know how to hold the instrument and the bow, the fingerings, bowing technique, and how to get a very respectable sound from the instrument.
He also installed the strings when I received the new instrument, found a manufacturing flaw in the bridge height that the manufacturer subsequently paid to repair, and diagnosed a resonance issue with the instrument that was corrected with a balance weight on the string below the bridge.
