I know nearly nothing about music, but just love to try. Lyle is patient, and able to be flexible if I have not been able to practice (as much as I should!)

Valerie M.

Waukesha, WI

About Valerie

2015 graduate from Lawrence University with a bachelor of music in horn performance (and an unofficial degree in swing dancing)

I love to help students find a passion for the horn. If the student i
s starting the instrument, I hope to provide the right tips to create good practice habits. Once a student knows how to practice without a teacher, that is when improvement has no boundaries. It is then that we can focus on building the right techniques so that musicality can come out uninhibited.

I love to spread that excited smile that can come from nowhere else than swing dancing. I teach Lindy Hop, Charleston, East Coast, and Collegiate Shag. With just a little enthusiasm to learn, inspiration can be pulled from everywhere. Even though the eyes may be on the moves, I emphasize that form, connection, and direction are the foundation of it all. But my ultimate goal is to free people up to have fun though listening to the music and improvising with another person.

I took piano lessons from Heather Ross in high school before going on to take a piano pedagogy major in college. Her teaching was a definite help in preparation for my college studies, and I learned much from her during my time studying under her. Heather is a knowledgeable and skilled teacher who understands what it takes to bring a student from one level to the next.
