Experienced Brass Instruments and Music Teacher

With a music education degree from SFSU and many years of private music teaching experience, I am proficient at teaching general music and music appreciation to all ages as part of my music lesson curriculum. I have a deep knowledge and appreciation for the music of many styles and cultures, and I love to impart that knowledge and appreciation to my students. When we study a piece of music, we also study its historical context, what the music is about, and why it is important. We learn how the lyrics of a song fit the tune, and how the composer's choice of melody and chords highlights the me [more]

I value students' success, tutoring music, math, english, & more.

I started learning music around the age of 4, picking up various instruments throughout the years.

Creative, Hard Working, Willing and Able to go the Extra Mile!

I minored in Music for my degree and have sung in many choirs. I love to help others acquire a love for the fineries found in the wonderful world of music. I am a recent college graduate from Brigham Young University, Idaho. I have always been the one to help other students understand when they are not able by using different words and descriptions to teach subject matter. I believe in guiding the student to the answer and not just giving it to them, so that they have the opportunity to learn and find confidence that they can figure out the answer on their own. I have always been able to encou [more]

Researcher/Musician/Social Media/Overall Well Educated

After playing music for 12 years I have learned all of the Basic Major and Minor chords A-G. With this knowledge I synchornize by ear the chords and notes to higher Octaves to play the same chord in a higher pitch. I would need to look into my augmented and 7th chords but after less than a day I would be able to instantly tutor a student. In fact I could even look it up in less than 6 seconds using the technology at hand. I believe cover songs are the best way to learn how to play instruments even if the song may be difficult. If the individual is not having fun/entertained then it is more dif [more]
