About Derrell

Music is my passion and life. I enjoy seeing others have a passion for it as well.

I have received a Bachelor of Arts in Music under vocal concentration and I am also a music director at a church. I teach songs to several choirs and I am also a pianist and organist. I've also taught songs at a Summer Choral Workshop and taught them vocal techniques. I have sung in recordings as well as different ceremonies.

My goal is to tap into a student's talents and gifts and bring them out more through my teaching.

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 had a piano instructor who taught me Suzuki from age 7 until age 14. I continue to play the piano regularly and I also play the organ at the church where I am the Music Director. I have also taken a couple courses of Piano at the college I attended. I have experience with teaching beginning piano students in the past and I enjoy seeing piano students grow.

Voice (Music)

When I was at Chicago State University, I took voice lessons every semester I was there and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music under vocal concentration. I learned about the importance of breathing and also singing techniques. The semester before I graduated, I sung "The Star Spangled Banner" and "Lift Every Voice and Sing" at the Commencement Ceremony. I have also sung with the Music and Christian Arts Ministry's live recording.
