I graduated for College in 1990 and got hired right out of College to teach Middle and High School Music Education in Athens, Ga. Then Moved to Ohio and taught Elementary Music Education for 10 years. Then Moved to NC. and taught for 3 years as a Music Elementary teacher. I decide, in 2000 I would open my own Music Academy; which I did. I've been in business now for the past 16 years.
And love every second of it!
I've worked with children ages 12 months (Music and Movement) to 80 year old adults. Men and Women and boys and girls!
The most recent event that I am fond of was when one of my student's mom was re-enrolling their son for piano with me...and his endearing comment was, "Mom, Mrs. Valerie is UN-STOPPABLE...I LOVE HER TEACHING ME!"
Look for one that fit your goals and needs.
How much of a commitment should I put aside for practice.
