I teach my students individually, addressing each personality type's needs. I encourage musical performances in piano and voice while stressing the importance of musical skills. I teach with a positive attitude, making lessons both fun and effective. My students have been recognized in many ways: National Federation of Music Study Clubs Festivals, National Piano Guild Auditions, local competitions, and school performances. Several of my students, including our three children are outstanding music teachers.
I have the following degrees and certifications:
BS in Music Education - University of Richmond; MM in Music Education, Virginia Commonwealth University, [email protected] Teacher Certification, Certifications in Vocal Performance and Vocal Pedagogy from the Departamento de Educaciøn del Paraguay.
In addition, I have years of experience as a music teacher and voice teacher in Virginia, Texas, Kentucky, and Paraguay. Most importantly, I LOVE HELPING MY STUDENTS ACHIEVE SUCCESS AND HAVE FUN DOING IT!
She is patient with my daughter and has a good teaching style. She is very encouraging and kind. My daughter has learned a great deal and made huge strides since taking lessons here. She has really cultivated a love of music in my daughter.
I was a pupil from ages 3 to 18 and now again as an adult in my late 20s. Mrs Jean is very easy to work with. She is flexible and can teach people with different learning styles. Over the years, she has become like a member of the family. She cares about teaching and pushing you, but she also cares about you as a person. I recommend her 100% to anyone needing a teacher, from early childhood through adulthood.
