Hello, all! My name is Syrlane A. I am from Brazil, but I have been in the US since 2003. I pursued my Bachelor's in Arts/Theory of Composition at Dallas Baptist University, and now I am about to graduate and get my Master's in Music Composition at Southwest Methodist University.
I love teaching music theory, composition, aural skills and piano. I have teaching experience in all of these areas because I was an active tutor at my universities. My ultimate goal is to have my own music composition studio, to encourage students to be successful composers, and to give back to the community through music.
Ear training has been part of my life since I was a kid. I was trained to identify notes by intervals - in other words, a first note was given and I had to, by interval association, figure out the second note; by scales, learning the sounds of the notes in ascending and descending order; and by chords, identifying the nature of each one - minor, major, augmented, diminished -, which is also possible to learn them by interval association. I tutored many students (both undergraduates and graduates) using these techniques, and they had a significant improvement.
I have been exposed to sight singing since I was 8 years old. I studied in a music school in Recife, Brazil which sight singing was one of the most important disciplines in music. During my junior and senior years at Dallas Baptist University as well as my Teacher Assistant job at Southern Methodist University, I tutored students on this subject, helping them to have a precise and consistent sight singing, using the methods I learned since I was a kid. Most of the students I helped had succeed on the class and their improvement were evident.
