I have been teaching music for over five years. I studied Music Education on a voice scholarship at Grand Canyon University. I have been singing for over 18 years and playing piano for over 15 years. I was named best vocalist in my high school choir.
I find joy in helping others develop skills needed to pursue their passions.
Gives helpful feedback to my daughter, and has a positive, cheerful attitude.
For piano, I provide curriculum according to the student's level of experience. For voice, I teach the student vocal exercises as well as sight reading and come with song choices based on the student's Lessons.com request, allowing the student to choose a song or songs to begin working with.
My grandmother, an accomplished piano teacher, began teaching me at age six. I started studying voice privately in seventh grade and I began to teach music to children when I was seventeen. I studied at Grand Canyon University on a music scholarship for two semesters and I am currently studying music at Golden West College in Huntington Beach as well as working as a worship intern at Generations Church in Los Alamitos.
My first students are charged a fixed rate from when I had less experience, but I currently charge $40/hr and $20/half hour with a negotiable discount for back to back lessons to within the same household.
The Children's Ministry Director at the church where I grew up offered me an internship to direct the children's Christmas musical for two consecutive years.
I have taught children from preschool to eight grade as well as young adults.
One of my favorite projects is leading worship for Vacation Bible School.
Consider whether or not the teacher is a good fit: think about their experience and how they can help you or your child to grow.
Have a basic game plan of where you would like to be taught (in your own home, in a separate classroom, Skype, etc.) as well as any songs or styles of music you might be interested in studying. If you are not sure about the repertoire you would like to work on or the length of the lesson, ask the teacher what he or she would recommend.
