About Sierra

I am an experienced musician and teacher with many diverse skills. I have been playing violin for fifteen years, and studying voice for eight. I have studied many genres, including jazz, classical, contemporary, folk, and theater. My passion for music began at a young age, and I hope to instill that enthusiasm to my students. I am new to the WyzAnt tutoring network, but I have been a school teacher, private instructor, camp director, and camp counselor for many years.

I graduated Summa Cum Laude and as the top music education student from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami in may 2015. During my time at Frost I was honored to have lead our branch of the National Association for Music Education, and to have served as my department representative on the council to the Dean.

I offer lessons and tutoring in general music, music theory, sight singing, voice, and violin. All of these subjects are ones in which I have been studying for many years, and have the skills and knowledge to help others grow and learn.

I look forward to hearing from you, and am eager to begin our work together!

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.

General Music

I currently teach general music to students ages 5-11 at a public school. During my time at the University of Miami, where I received credentials to teach choir, band, orchestra, and general music grades K-12, I completed an internship. During this internship I taught music appreciation, beginning theory, AP theory, many choirs, and band. I have a teaching credential in the state of Oregon to teach any grade level of any music type.

Sight Singing

I studied Music Education (choral emphasis) at the University of Miami. I have been singing for over eight years, and am an excellent sight reader. I took classes at the University of Miami in ear training, which included sight singing.

Violin

I currently teach private violin lessons through a facility in Portland. I have been a teaching assistant for violin camps for three years, and have done very well. I have been playing violin for fifteen years, and have experience in classical, folk, and contemporary genres.

Voice (Music)

The voice was my primary instrument when I attended the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami. I studied classical, jazz, theater, and contemporary, giving me a wide range of genres to understand and teach. I have been teaching choir at summer camps for two years, and currently have voice students thorough a facility in Portland.
