Experienced and passionate music educator! I have extensive training in the field of music education, and it is truly a passion of mine. I have relocated to the New York area for family reasons. I have experience as a certified teacher having worked with middle school, high school, and collegiate undergraduate students. My strategy in regards to advancing individuals in the knowledge of music education is to take music theory and break it down into simplistic areas. As I scaffold the information to the student, it will eventually lead up to efficiency and proficiency in the area of music theory. I also offer instrumental music education; specifically woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments. I am willing to travel in the New York Metropolitan area.
I have a bachelor's of music education from Grambling State University in Louisiana and graduate coursework from the University of Houston. I have taught middle school band and music for six years in Houston, Texas as a certified and licensed instructor. I have served as the director of operations for the Greater Houston All Star Band Non-Profit organization which services grades 8-12.
I am from Louisiana, and I have been playing the saxophone for 19 years. I am an esteemed member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc., Kappa Kappa Psi National Honorary Band Fraternity Inc. and Texas Music Educators Association. It is my hope that you will reach out and make arrangements so that we can get you to the next level in your own music education.
