** CURRENTLY BEING UPDATED**
I am currently available for private lessons in Southeast Missouri, as well as lessons over FaceTime or Skype. Please contact me if you would like to learn more.
During my private studio teaching sessions, the one-on-one interaction enables me to provide opportunities for students to focus solely on his/her goals and assigned tasks for each lesson. Constant motivation and encouragement is given to all students to help build self-confidence as a musician. This one-on-one environment also minimizes distractions otherwise experienced while situated in the formal classroom setting.
During my private studio teaching, I note goals and assessments from the inception of our interaction, and I provide subsequent instruction to ensure that students have a sound comprehension of the content discussed. I strive for lessons to be innovative, engaging and insightful. The overarching goal of each lesson is to ensure that students leave with a sense of understanding and musical fulfillment.
