About Dri

I am a licensed music educator from Illinois State University with a specialization in vocal and general music. I've been singing for 12 years, and playing piano for five. I also played flute for nine years, and have experience with most of the woodwind family through my undergraduate program. I took the Music Theory AP class when I was in high school, and have excelled at it ever since, taking extra classes in college merely because it fascinated me.

In addition to my music background, I have also had a passion for the writing arts. I helped finance my way through college and attaining my music degree both by giving private lessons in music and also tutoring in English as well as proofreading papers and essays. I mostly helped high school students prepare for the ACT Reading, Writing, and English sections.

I like to approach all subjects with a step-by-step process, building each lesson on the one before it and working toward the goals set by my students.

I want my students to be in charge of their own learning; I am here to facilitate and help guide them toward their own musical understandings and epiphanies!

I will teach in the way my student learns best, and am willing to work with my students to figure out what that way is!

I design my lessons around my students and the pace with which they are learning.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 a licensed music educator. In order to attain my licensure as well as graduate I needed to pass classes devoted to ear training and music theory. I am trained not only in identifying pitches, intervals, and other patterns, but in methods to help students become more proficient in their own skill and ability to do so.

Music Theory

I needed to prove proficiency in Music Theory in order to obtain my degree. Not only did I do so, but throughout my undergraduate I tutored fellow classmates who were struggling. I am experienced with teaching Music Theory to both the experienced musician as well as someone new to the subject, and can design lessons, worksheets, and assessments based on the student's level.

Piano

I am a certified music educator with a specialization in vocal and general music. As a part of my certification I had to pass piano proficiency, which included the ability to sight-read multiple parts, perform chord progressions, and play both hands independently at the same time. I own my own keyboard and am versed in score-preparation, which is necessary for rehearsing and accompanying choirs.

Proofreading

I have acted as a proofreader for friends and classmates since high school. Once I entered college I also became a proofreader for those I tutored as well as for a couple of friends who were working on their Masters papers. I am very thorough with my proofreading, and can act as a proofreader for someone or teach others how to effectively proofread.

Sight Singing

I am a certified music educator with a specialization in choral education. As a part of my training I took classes on teaching sight-reading techniques such as solfege, count-singing, number-singing, and using the curwen hand signs. I was also required to use these techniques in my own ensemble experience throughout both high school and my 4-year undergraduate program.

Voice (Music)

I am a licensed music educator with a focus in voice. I have taken private voice lessons myself for nine years and throughout my undergrad I've had to train students in a private-lesson setting. I have built curricula for private voice before, both for my own students as well as for the completion of my degree.
