As a former elementary music educator, a homeschool parent, and a musician, my life revolves around the concept of 'lifetime learning.' I aspire to share that concept with all my students, whether in music or in the application of other skills in reading, sciences, or math to how they apply to real life. "Family First" is not just a name but a philosophy to empower the family to be the source of knowledge, not just the tutor as a master teacher.
I coach and tutor elementary, middle and high school students in various subjects, focusing on study skills, interdisciplinary learning, and classical study techniques. I specialize in helping families to organize and apply their curriculum of choice to any field or desired educational goal. By putting the family first, I can incorporate any style of learning to help your family raise confident and challenge-ready students.
I also am a 20 year veteran musician and music teacher with almost 10 years experience as a public school music teacher in Miami Dade Schools. I specialized in music technology, music theory, and I now help both children and adults become musically literate through piano. I can teach all styles, including pop, jazz, gospel, and rock. Music is about connecting the eye, the hand, and the ear to help one to 'make the music they were meant to make'. That is our philosophy and we don't force students into a classical or formal mindset in order to enjoy performing and learning.
I look forward to helping you and your students achieve their goals in any field, musically or academically. Success is a call away!
