I believe anyone can learn a new skill so long as they 1) have a strong desire to learn it, and 2) are willing to practice patience, and give their new talents time to develop.
I'm passionate about teaching students (no matter the age) that by being themselves, they can absolutely play that chord or sing that note. Practice, time, and patience is all that's needed!
My personal teaching style is catered to the individual student. I approach each student with a sample lesson plan, and then tailor it based on their level of skill, interest, and progress.
In the past, I've taught concert and church choirs, as well as musical theatre classes and private voice lessons. The ages ranged from pre-K and up (to about the late 60s).
Outside of the teaching world, I am writing and recording my own music. I also love to read non-fiction books, and thrift shop my little heart out!
To future students: Once you grow enough confidence to be yourself, and you learn that new thing, it translates into every area of life. Find what you love, give it your all, and don't give up!
