I have over 35 years of teaching experience, including ten years of teaching in public and parochial school venues. I am a Fine Arts specialist. I can teach lessons in any Band or Orchestral instrument, Visual Art or Theatre. I can come to the student, or the student can come to me. I work with the whole student and their parents. I am a mentor teacher. I welcome students of all ages, starting at age four on up. (including keyboards)The first lesson includes an assessment of the student abilities and establishment of student, parent, and teacher's expectations. I give a multiple student discount. I offer numerous types of lesson packages. I love the arts and enjoying them.
I love sharing the fine arts with people and helping them learn something new about their creative side. I love teaching the sometimes silent art of creation. I want my students to find joy in musical or artistic expression. I love watching "the lights" come into a student's eyes when they master something the first time and discover something new about themselves. while having fun.
There are no reviews yet
The first lesson is usually an hour so that I can assess the student, meet a parent and get to know what they want and goals the wish to set. Then I check out the instrument, books talk about expectations, the student's the parent and mine. I give the first lesson and set the next one. I always start with an assessment and start where they are. We do review basics especially if they come to me after having another instructor.
