What excites & satisfies me about my work is the work. Teaching singing & piano is my niche in life where I go into a mental zone. My joy & satisfaction comes from getting to help a student grow. I really care about my students. I am quirky & laid back, I will make you laugh at times, and you will enjoy the process.
I incorporate holistic & psychological practices to help students with stage fright, or who are just overloaded in life, to be able to get past those barriers.
I think outside the box, so my lessons aren't the stereotypical ones people imagine.
I asked a student of mine a couple years back, after 2 years of lessons, what she thought. Her reply was that it isn't what she thought it would be, but it just works.
I take great joy in assisting my students to grow in their art.
Andrea is patient, positive and kind. She helped my daughter go from presenting as tone deaf to hearing & singing in key and accurately. She gained confidence, learned coping mechanisms, and over all improved a ton. She really enjoyed her lessons over the years.
I get to know the goals & desires of why my students want lessons, answer any questions there are, and set up a lesson. At the first lesson, I get to know the student a little better, find out how they are, and introduce them to what lessons are; find the appropriate material for their level, and go from there.
