As a student, I attended West Chester University of Pennsylvania as a candidate for a Bachelors in Music in music education on voice, graduating in May of 2017 with this degree and minors in jazz studies and music history. Having passed my Praxis exams, I earned my Pennsylvania teaching license in K-12 music. Upon graduation, I went on to teach K-8 general music, choir, and musical theater in the School District of Philadelphia at Overbrook Educational Center from 2017 to 2019. At the end of the 2018-2019 academic year, I moved to Denver, transferred my teaching license to the state of Colorado, and taught PreK-5 general music at Rocky Mountain Prep Southwest. From 2018-2020, I attended Temple University earning my Masters of Music in music education through their online program all while working full time. In August of 2020, I graduated with my Masters at the age of 25.
In addition to formal teaching experience, I have also been teaching private lessons in the area of voice, piano, guitar, and ukulele since January of 2015 through a multitude of companies, providing in-home, in-studio, and online personalized instruction.
In terms of tutoring, I am able to provide individualized support and education in all areas of music-related content as well as math, reading, and writing. My approach as a 1:1 instructor is to meet the student where they are at and utilize their strengths in order to bolster their weaknesses. Thus, I remedy gaps in understanding while boosting self-confidence and interest. To me, education is a gift and a tool that should be made accessible and loved by all students.
