My undergraduate degree is in music education, both instrumental and vocal, and I am certified to teach kindergarten through twelfth grade. Earning a masters degree in flute performance and a doctorate in music theory with a minor in musicology, I am qualified to teach any musical subject desirable! I specialize in flute, piano, voice, theory, and composition lessons - but I am ready and able to teach other subjects as required.
My true heart lies in bringing music to those who need it for healing their spirits and bodies - I have extensive experience teaching music to those with special needs and immense knowledge on the topic of how music is used for healing (especially traumatic brain injuries). My knowledge in the field of special education includes writing IEP goals, utilizing music to meet physical and occupational therapy goals, teaching children and adults voice inflection using music, and teaching fine and gross motor skills through musical activities.
Lastly, my native languages include English and American Sign Language. I can teach you the structure of each language for a comparison/contrast or we can simply converse. We can even sign songs if you're looking for something more poetic.
I am a highly successful, experienced, and enthusiastic teacher who has a multitude of teaching styles to fit the needs of your student. My teaching methods are hands-on, engaging, and memorable. I believe that above all else, learning should be fun!
