As a certified (K-12) music teacher, I have been trained to teach music as an art form, so that people with all kinds of life experiences and beliefs can participate in making music objectively, in a safe space. I absolutely respect learner diversity, and welcome feedback on specific sensitive topics (i.e. family or cultural beliefs that make certain music sensitive). Conversations about sensitivity will be treated with the highest discretion. Certifications and Experience: Bachelor of Music Education Master of Music in Music Education Currently certified as a K-12 music teacher, with ESL endorsement (exp 2024) 18 years experience teaching music in public elementary schools 12 years experience teaching private music lessons and community choirs Currently a doctoral student in Curriculum & Instruction
As a student, you will need your own piano or keyboard. In addition, you will need to own a copy of the sheet music for any songs you want to learn. In most cases, a piano book in the student's level is the best option for having a variety of songs to learn. Many piano learning books are $10-15. We can use music and learning materials that you already have or I can suggest materials for you to purchase. I also have some digital materials that I may use to enrich your learning journey. Links to access those materials will be shared in the classroom site. You will not need to create an account or log in to the music publisher's website to access those songs.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Music and learning materials used in our class will be co-selected by teacher and student. I will assume that any music or materials provided by the student have been approved by a parent. I recommend that students and parents have open communication about the music that the student wants to work on in the class. Students may have the opportunity to utilize digital materials on a music publisher's website. Links to access the songs will be shared in the classroom site. Students will not need to create an account or log in to the music publisher's website to access those songs.
