About Marla

I recently graduated with my Master's degree in Collaborative Piano. I am working at Bakersfield College as an accompanist. Music is my first love, but I am passionate about all subjects. I was homeschooled and was able to excel in many areas, including math, music, social science, and English.

I am a passionate, organized, and responsible teacher. I also have experience working with adults. I believe one on one attention provides an environment where the student can learn in the best way that suits their needs. I adjust my approach depending on the student's abilities and background. I have experience working with an autistic child, and a child with dyslexia. All children have the ability to succeed and I can't ask for a better way to spend my time than working with students.

I was homeschooled, and math was my father's favorite subject. I completed high school math by the time I was 12, and have always loved approaching problems from different angles. I have lots of experience helping kids with homework, and have been a tutor for a few years.

I grew up putting great effort into my handwriting skills. I believe that handwriting reflects on the individual's level of care, discipline, and organization.

I have my Master's in Collaborative piano, and I love teaching music lessons! I have over 10 years experience working with students. I am an active performer at churches, in orchestras, choirs, solo pianist, and accompanist. I incorporate music history and music theory into all my lessons.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to hearing from 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.

Piano

I graduated with my Master's in Collaborative Piano from Southern Illinois University Carbondale in 2015. I have my B.A. in Music from Principia College. I have been teaching private piano lessons for over ten years, and had a graduate assistantship in accompanying from 2013-2015. I have taught private piano lessons to adults and children as young as 4yrs old. I typically use the Alfred and Bastien piano methods when working with beginners.

Violin

I am a professional violinist and pianist. I took private violin lessons in college and graduate school, when I earned my Master's in Collaborative Piano. I have over 10yrs experience teaching private violin lessons, including through the Outreach Program at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I also have group lesson experience at elementary schools. I am an active performer in orchestras, at weddings, and in chamber ensembles. I am a trained Suzuki Violin Teacher in books 1-3, with more training to come soon.
