About Emily

Hello all! I am Emily F., a graduate of Grove City College with a degree in Music Education. While in school I majored in Percussion and Voice and spent the majority of my time performing and gaining experience. I am currently an elementary music teacher with Prince George's County Schools, where I have just begun my 5th year of teaching. I have had years of lessons myself and have taught many students as well. As a vocalist, I can teach you how to sing anything from Top 40 hits to Broadway numbers to Operatic Arias. I will help you gain confidence as a performer and vocal strength. I am also prepared to teach beginning piano lessons to help you learn to accompany yourself and others. For percussion lessons, I have years of experience as a principal percussionist in my College's band and orchestra and would love to help you learn how to be a classically trained percussionist, not a drummer. Overall, I offer experience, knowledge, and a chance to get out of your shell and onto a stage.

In addition to music lessons, I can also be of service as an elementary tutor. While I teach music in school, I work very closely with classroom teachers and am comfortable workng with students in Kindergarten through 5th grade who need help with their schoolwork.

Music and math work hand in hand. I have taken classes on teaching elementary math and can work with students to help them understand.

I am an avid reader and am very passionate about it. I have spent a lot of time deceloping reading lessons and projects and can therefore be of help with students struggling with reading. I have also taken public speaking classes, acted in plays, and teach full time, so public speaking is something I have great confidence in.

I work in an elementary school and, though I teach music, I work very closely with the reading teachers. I have a lot of experience helping students with homework.

I have a passion for teaching and I firmly believe that knowledge is power. I am fully devoted to helping you or your child achieve your goals. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
