I believe anyone can learn and master something new, as long as they 1) have an interest or strong desire to learn it, and 2) are willing to practice patience, and give their talents time to develop.
I'm passionate about helping students understand that by being themselves, they can absolutely play that chord, sing that note, or pass that test. *no matter the age* 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", which is really just me getting a feel for how they learn. I 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), and anywhere from 1 student to 150. Outside of the teaching world, I write 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!
