I am very personable with each individual, whether they are 4 or 94! I give everyone the unique attention they deserve and cater to their learning style. I am very proficient at helping students learn to read music and master their instrument(s) of choice!
I enjoy working one-one-one with people to achieve their musical goals. I am proud that I can play almost every instrument and teach them just as well. I have a passion for music education and display that in my teaching.
Lessons with Ms.Villa are so fun, she’s awesome
When working with a new student, I like to get to know them first - their taste in music, goals they'd like to achieve, and learning style. We talk about practicing for progress and NOT perfection.
I have had a private lesson studio since 2002 when I graduated from SUNY Fredonia with a BA in Music Education.
For younger students (ages 4-7), I charge $15 for 20 minutes. For all other students, I charge $25 for 30 minutes. I ask for the month to be paid in advance at the beginning of the month via QuickBooks online.
I starting teaching when I was in high school and did an internship with a band director/mentor of mine. I loved it from day one! I could connect with my students very easily and help them progress at a good pace.
I have worked with students of all ages (4 and up), with all types of abilities.
I am very fond of the tiny house movement. I believe that these are excellent for people who want to "live tiny", but also for those who have financial hardships and need a home. I've always dreamed of helping such individuals.
If a student were looking for a private music lesson teacher, my biggest piece of advice would be to set themselves up for success. In order to do this, they should get to know the prospective instructor, reflect upon what they'd like to achieve, and set aside time in which they can practice for progress.
Before talking to teachers about their needs, students should ask themselves questions such as, "Why do I want to take lessons?", "What outcome am I seeking?", "What is my learning style?", and "What type of teacher would I match best with?"
