I love music! I began piano lessons when I was 4 years old. Beginning in 5th grade, I began accompanying for programs in my church and school. I was very active in competitions and recitals all the way up through my high school graduation with 1st place awards in most of those competitions. I received my Bachelors of Arts degree in Church Music with a principle of piano from Bob Jones University in 2004. While there I also accompanied for many senior and graduate voice recitals as well as accompanying University choirs and ensembles. I love to travel and had the privilege of touring Europe three times accompanying a University choir. I also traveled to South America three times participating in music concerts. The last eight years, I have traveled across the country as the Music Coordinator of a touring group. We specialized in bluegrass, Irish and sacred music. During that time I was involved with ten vocal and instrumental recordings. I wrote or arranged most of the music for these recordings as well as produced half the cds. I also was involved with compiling arrangements for three music arrangement books for piano, violin and flute as well as recently produced my own sacred solo piano book. I also have had the privilege of teaching piano for the last eight years. I enjoy helping people discover the joy of music and helping people grow in their skills. I believe music lessons can help people become more disciplined, creative and happy as they allow it be a part of their lives. In my lessons, I can offer the student training in classical, contemporary and worship styles of playing. I also can help you grow in music theory, ear training, sight reading and accompanying skills. If you are interested in song writing and arranging, I also can provide instruction in these areas. *** Lesson Details *** I am a very laid back person. I want my lessons to be fun yet beneficial. I want to learn the personality of my students and want to help them grow in their skills and love music. I will use the Alfred Premiere and Faber method books. Theory, ear training and sight reading will be a part of each lesson as well. I believe in a classical foundation for all musicians but will also include instruction in other genres as well such as contemporary and jazz playing. *** Travel Equipment *** I need the student to have a piano. *** Specialties *** I specialize in classical, contemporary, hymn playing and worship style piano.

Noodle says

Takelessons started as a platform to for music teachers, and is still strongest on that front. It provides tutors with organizational software designed to help track lessons, and so probably attracts more tech-friendly, highly organized tutors. No vetting or training is provided for tutors, so we highly recommend that you use their ratings and reviews when selecting a tutor.

TakeLessons says

Success in learning often depends on finding the right teacher; someone that not only has expertise in the subject, but also knows how to inspire. The teaching style that works for one student may not work for another. As a parent or student, how do you find the right match? As a teacher, how do you find new students that fit your style? TakeLessons bridges this gap.
