About Dakota

Plato once said, "Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything". This quote could not describe my attitude toward music any better. It was through unfortunate circumstances that I could not finish my undergraduate at the Dana School of music, but I still have a deep passion for spreading the joy of music. I have countless personal experiences where music had helped me through troubling times or simply brightened my day. It is because of this that I strive to keep music in schools and to help show what joy music can bring. I personally know the hardship that comes with struggling through any subject. I strive to help anyone in need. If you choose me as you or your child's tutor, I promise you won't be disappointed.

My qualifications include 12 years of professional piano lessons including 2 years with world renowned pianist Dr. Caroline Oltmanns. I've studied music theory since the age of 15. I have been a member of the Blue Coats drum and bugle corps and played in concert band from grades 4-12. I graduated from Columbiana High School and received a music scholarship.

I would personally like to thank you for looking into my profile and hope to work with you soon to help you with any and all questions you may have.

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.

Composition (Music)

I studied at the Dana School of Music in the Music Theory and Composition program for two years. Prior to my studies at YSU, I had partaken in music theory classes alongside my piano lessons.

General Music

My qualifications for tutoring general music include surrounding myself with music for the last 12 years. I participated in piano lessons, concert band, marching band and choir all through middle and high school. My music didn't stop there as I continued my studies with the Blue Coats drum and bugle corps and moved further at the Youngstown State University's Dana School of Music.

Music Theory

I have completed Intro to Theory, Theory I and Theory II.

Piano

My piano background includes private lessons with two fantastic teachers. Melva Huebert was my first teacher. She has been employed by several colleges and has extensive piano experience. My second teacher was Dr. Caroline Oltmanns. She is a profession pianist who holds concerts all over the world. Together they taught me a love for learning and performing on the piano.
