I evaluate the student to determine the correct level and method for each person's current knowledge and ability. I will slowly guide the student how to play and read music accurately and give the student memory activities or apps to help with learning notes of bass and treble. Music theory will help the student understand the chords, scales and mathematical base of the tempo and rhythm.
I have a bachelor's degree and teaching experience with children and adults. I played the piano in highschool temporarily then started taking private lessons in the early 1990's and developed a strong desire to teach after learning how important it is to learn how to read music accurately and play correctly with emotion and dynamics. Learning how to sightread is the best knowledge to have and I can teach that.
Mara is a first-rate teacher. Her love of people and love of music makes learning a pleasant experience for me and a time I look forward to. She often uses different teaching techniques which adds some variation and “pizazz” to our sessions. I guess one of the neatest things I like about her is her patient attitude, she is always kind, and yet assertive. I have grown much since I began learning with Mara. She’s one of the best.
In the years preceding the Pandemic Ms. Henry was a teacher in our weekly Religious Education program. She was a joy to supervise as she always arrived well prepared and on time. She taught the lower grades, Grade 1 and Grade 3. It was impossible to mistake the sincere affection that her students had for her. Not only did the students learn from her, but the learning was fun and lasting. I would highly recommend Ms. Henry for her skills as a teacher and goodness as a person.
Mara is one of my Spanish students and is very intelligent and capable. She has a very pleasant personality and is a positive influence in class. I have known her for about five years.
