Private Instructor in Alabama
I have been with Music and Arts since February of 2019. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree of Music in Music Therapy from the University of Alabama. Music has always been a lifelong passion of mine, and once I decided to make a career of it, teaching quickly became a joyous part of my life. Throughout my teaching career and collegiate studies, I have been able to work with students of all ages, including individuals with disabilities. I quickly fell in love working with adaptive students, and witnessing how music helps us to grow in various aspects of our lives.
During lessons, I like to highlight the importance of music theory. I believe this is a very important tool that will enhance your playing, personal composition, and improvisation. For a beginner, I prefer to teach understanding of how music is written, then progress into scales and their correlation with chords. In regards to advanced players, there is no limit to theory education! But at the end of the day, each lesson is tailored to the student, and I manage our time in ways that will best benefit the student to meet their personal goals. This is why I feel it is vital to choose music my students are passionate to learn. The more joy and excitement the individual has with their music, the more focus and motivation will come in their practices to follow.
Music should be a walk filled with passion, excitement, and newfound adventures. If there is anything I can do to help encourage you through this walk, please feel free to contact me through the store at: 704-341-0000 along with any questions you may have.
