I enjoy teaching students of all ages and levels. Each lesson is customized to meet the individual students' needs and goals. I have over 15 years of teaching experience. My education in music is extensive. I was principal cellist at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Interlochen, Michigan. I have a Doctorate from Indiana University in Music Composition and Music Theory. I also studied piano and cello at Indiana University. I have a Masters degree in music from Butler University in Indianapolis. My major was composition but I also studied piano. My teaching experience is also extensive. I have taught intermediate campers at the Interlochen Center for the Arts summer camp as well as at Butler University and Indiana State University. I have been writing music and teaching private piano, cello, music theory, and composition lessons in Charlotte, NC for the last ten years. My compositions include solo and chamber pieces as well as electronic works, symphonic band works, and orchestral works. In 2004 I won the Judith Lang Zaimont award from the International Association of Women in Music. I love music and enjoy sharing it with others. So whether you are 4, or 90, or somewhere in between, let's have some fun! *** Lesson Details *** Lessons are customized for each student. Weekly assignments will be given. Please bring a notebook to the first lesson for lesson assignments. *** Travel Equipment *** I expect the students to buy the appropriate music books and have the appropriate instrument. *** Specialties *** I teach in all genres - pop, rock, classical, new music, jazz, new age, etc.

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.
