Hi! My name is Teresa, and I work with students....just like you. I have been teaching music for 25+ years and love it! I teach primarily piano, but also have taught group Theory classes, Kindermusik preschoolers, and coached bands to reach their best potential. I have a bachelors degree from the U. of Puget Sound (WA) and have had 10 years of private study preceding this. I perform regularly in Battle Creek, MI, as well as at my church, where I head up our worship band. I have produced 3 CDs and am well versed in Midi applications, CD production, and arranging music. I also belong to the Battle Creek Area Music Teachers Assoc. (BCAMTA) where I have served as President, Vice Pres., Secretary, etc. I bring a great deal of experience to the table. I also use a variety of teaching materials and often use what the student already has on-hand. I try to make learning music fun and I would love to work with you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Ear Training

I am excellent in Aural Awareness and teach the same to my students. I play the piano "by ear" as well as with music; being classically trained. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Puget Sound with a minor in music. I also "chart" music for my students/clients, writing the chords and notes for them to play from recordings that they give me. I actively participate in my local association's Student Achievement program (BCAMTA) and the area that I normally judge and oversee is the Aural Awareness testing.

Piano

I have been teaching piano for almost 30 years. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Puget Sound with a minor in music. I teach all ages with a variety of styles. I am especially passionate about music theory and improvisation. I am also a member and past president of the Battle Creek Music Teachers Association (BCAMTA) which is affiliated with the Michigan Music Teachers Assoc. (MMTA) and Music Teachers National Assoc. (MTNA). Because of this, my students are able to participate in the wonderful programs and festivals we sponsor. I am also a professional keyboard performer, which brings even more depth to my teaching.
