About this pro

I am a classically trained musician with a Bachelors Degree in Music Education from Texas State University. I also hold memberships with both the Texas Music Educators Association and the National Association of Teachers of Singing. I have studied and performed in music for over 30 years.  I teach voice lessons and beginning to intermediate level piano. My teaching style is relaxed in nature. I believe that a good repore with my students is important. Learning should be fun and enjoyable. Students should be free to learn at their own pace. My instruction is always student centered as each student is unique in they're learning level and capabilities.

My biggest joy comes from helping a student succeed in reaching their potential as a musician. I especially enjoy watching the reaction of a student when they make a breakthrough achievement in an area that has previously given them difficulty.

    Monica is a great teacher. My daughter has ADHD and Monica has great techniques to keep her focused during her lessons. She is very patient and very knowledgeable.

  • Pam R

    Monica is kind, patient, respectful, and is skilled in teaching music. My daughter enjoys having Monica as a music teacher. Monica does not force or push her agenda but listens and gives my daughter room to grow by allowing her to go at her own pace.

  • Ryann Lang

    She is always very encouraging but also makes sure to give excellent advice. She is also very comfortable to work with and makes the classes very fun. I feel much more confident after taking her classes.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My typical process with students is to spend the first half of the lesson building fundamental basics such as rhythm and staff literacy. The second half of the lesson is spent working on a piece of music geared to the application of those fundamentals.That being said, individual home practice is key to achieve maximum benefits of lessons. Without a commitment to consistent practice, the a student is unlikely to retain the information that I impart to them as a teacher.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

B.M. Music Education w / all-level teaching certification from

Texas State University (2008)

I have 30 plus years of provate vocal study.
