I excelled in sight singing and ear training during my undergraduate studies at Florida Atlantic University. I was a tutor to 7 students in the program during the 3rd and 4th levels of the course. I am confident I can teach students ear training through various methods- including while learning and playing an instrument or simply using voice and piano. I have advanced knowledge of theory and can educate students on practice techniques they can utilize along with exercises both written and oral to help them comprehend theory and ear training.
I have studied violin for over 13 years. I graduated with honors from Florida Atlantic University with a B.A. in Commercial Music and my primary instrument as Violin. I am familiar with the Suzuki method as well as the Carl Flesch Scale system. I have taught private lessons before (6-14 years old) and have also worked as a clinician at Sawgrass Springs Middle School in Coral Springs, Fl with the 6,7 and 8th orchestras last year. I am comfortable teaching basic to advanced techniques on violin and am committed to the students feeling confident and comfortable while learning!
I am familiar with all Microsoft Windows Software. I know advanced tips and techniques in word, excel, outlook and powerpoint that can help enhance every day usage to complex usage. From building multi function spreadsheets to multi media powerpoint presentations- I am fully capable of slowly explaining terms and creating templates for the user. I have all the programs on my computer and work side by side with student to see how they would go about solving the problem they are running into, and then showing them where the function is located to help.
