I have been teaching piano, violin, and voice for 32 years, and have loved it. The age range I teach are students 4 years and older and the levels I teach are beginner to early advanced. I give my students a good foundation by teaching the correct technique with the instrument, give them ear training, and teach correct finger placements.
With all my training, I am very versatile in voice. Meaning I can teach many different styles of voice depending on my students’ needs. I have also studied techniques on how to teach preschoolers to sing in “Singing In Suzuki Style” under Debby Smith in Bountiful. This was a fun way to teach the young to sing in a very enjoyable environment. I taught preschoolers on up to 10 year olds in a group lesson style with 4 kids in age appropriate classes. This is something I would love to do again at Day Murray Music. Ask your kids friends to join your kids in my classes and we will have a blast learning voice with our friends.
For piano, I love trying to find music that my students love. The reason I do this is to keep challenging them and to help them learn to love playing. I teach all different styles of piano. I can teach classical and I do have a very good ear for jazz and religious. But I love all types of piano music. For violin, I teach from Suzuki and Barbara Barber as classical methods. Along with the classical methods, I have also found an interest in Celtic and fiddling style as well.
