I have been an Outschool teacher since May 2020. I have 20+ years experience, as a music teacher and professional musician. I have taught piano, electric keyboard, guitar, and ukelele, in both the classroom and private settings. I was head of the music department at a private high school in Maryland. I taught private piano and guitar lessons at a guitar shop, for 5 years, in addition to my own private students in my studio. I have a bachelor's degree in music education, from Towson University, plus graduate studies in music education.
No homework is required. If we learn any songs, depending on the student's level, I will post the song sheets in the classroom.

I will sometimes play a song for the student, using youtube on the zoom screen share. This will be to let them hear how the song goes, so they can more easily learn the song.
