I really enjoy working and teaching students aged from 5 to 95! Music is very rewarding to me and I perform in many different aspects of it - Piano, keyboard, organ, percussion, bells and choir. My favorite aspect is in teaching smiling faces and people who have a ouch could you get one just one OK good I didn't know you could get up singularly $25. OK yeah that's what do you enjoy about the work you do I really enjoy watching people grow in learning music and especially helping students enjoy music and see how it to learn.

My 8 year old granddaughter loves Learning piano from Mrs, Joan . She is so nice and makes fun learning piano for her.
Amazing lady she gives you lots of great pointers and visuals in music theory. Highly recommended.
I really enjoyed having Joan as my piano teacher and learned so much even as an adult in less than 2 years! She has the patience of a saint!
I love how thorough and patient she is — and so encouraging to my teenage son. Her rates are super reasonable, too. We just adore her and highly recommend her. Judging by her library of songbooks and amazing experience and credentials, she would be a great fit for any level of student. She has a very sweet dog, too!
When meeting a new student, I ascertain what they already know about music and playing the piano, and what they want to get from taking piano lessons. Then I provide music books and tools to help them meet their goals. They will reimburse me for applicable items.
Attended Florida State University and completed Bachelor of Music at University of Alabama in Huntsville with a major in piano and a split minor in organ and voice. Started lessons at age eight and have been teaching for over 40 years. I am a member of Music Teacher's National Association, Alabama Music Teacher's Association and Huntsville Music Teacher's Association and enter interested and qualified students in auditions and competitions. I have taught ages 3 through 72 and have been active in several types of music - Directing orchestras for musicals, directing choirs, playing bells and percussion in Concert Bands, and playing keyboard in a Big Swing Band.
I teach 30 minute lessons for $30, 45 minute lessons for $40 and hour lessons for $50 once a week and ask students to pay by the lesson.
I began piano lessons at age 8 and have always enjoyed music in all its various forms. As I grew, I knew that my greatest joy would be in helping others to learn the wonderful effects that music can have on individuals and also how it can be therapeutic to the soul.
I have taught pre-schoolers, elementary ages, teenagers, adults and even a retired Army Colonel! I only want to work with people that want to learn. A smiling face is always appreciated!
Last year my students had a Halloween Recital and dressed in their favorite costumes. We usually have a Christmas/Winter Recital and always have a Spring recital.
Try to match personalities that would be appropriate for the student. Also, find out their qualifications - especially if the student wants to major in music.
They need to have an instrument to practice on, and enough time required to learn the lessons given each week. Everyone learns at different paces, but the student needs to have an atmosphere that would be conducive to practice without distractions.
