About Joellen

I have a General Music, Instrumental Music and American History degree (BS) from Ball State University, Muncie, IN.

I have over 25 years of teaching experience from Kindergarten to High School. I also have over 25 years of tutoring experience with Band students on their chosen instruments with the majority of my private students receiving Group I ratings at solo-ensemble contest.

During my teaching in the classroom (K - 12) for 12 years, I always had a music history/social studies lesson that went along with the music we were learning. I believe in incorporating other subject matter into my lessons in order to give a well-rounded lesson.

My lessons are geared towards the student with well-defined goals. I also try to figure out what struggles the student is having with the subject and try to provide the needed information to the student.

I am also very one-on-one with my students and adaptive to their learning styles and what works best with them.
If one way does not "click" with them, I will find another way to present the material.

I am also very informative. I will tell the student and parents what I am teaching, how I am going to teach it and ask for suggestions and input. I will give parents and students weekly progress reports and discuss different methods of teaching if the student is still struggling with the material.
