About Marie

I am a former band director in a middle school for 19 years and have 10+ years' teaching private instrumental lessons on band instruments. I also have experience teaching young children in church as well as serving as a camp counselor for several years. I enjoy working with children very much and enjoy teaching preschool through high school students.
I would like to offer tutoring sessions on band instruments (flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and trombone) and in music theory and history to any age student, in addition to sessions in the elementary subjects (math, reading, writing, spelling). My teaching strategies included in each session include review of known material, presentation of new material, hands on application of new material and a summary where students tell or show me what they have learned. As a tutor, I also believe that it is important to supplement and reinforce students' work in school. Therefore, I would like to help students with homework and classwork as needed. I am also willing to provide supplemental materials to help reinforce concepts.
Instrumentally, my goal is to help students improve their playing abilities using a variety of music (i.e. band books, sheet music, method books, etc). I will teach students proper playing techniques (i.e. posture, playing position, tone production) and will demonstrate these to students on a regular basis. Students will learn basic scales and arpeggios and solos on their instruments. I will also help students with their concert music from school and preparation for auditions and performances as needed. Playing duets with my students is one of my favorite parts of lessons and I like to play at least one per session. I also believe that music should be fun and encourage students to bring (or I'll search my library) a "fun" piece each lesson (i.e. music from a movie, popular music, etc.).
I am willing to travel to students' homes for tutoring sessions or meet at a local library (if not instrumental lessons). Please contact me regarding meeting arrangements.
I look forward to working with you!
