Kalamazoo College grad (2020) and current Masters of Education (K-12 Music) Student Offering Piano/Music Lessons!

Methodology

What is most important to me is that students enjoy what they are learning, and that they find intrinsic motivation to continue their learning. I am willing to work with any age of student and teach them whatever material they are interested in learning; what I think is crucial, though, is that they feel successful and engaged.

Background

Hi! I graduated from Kalamazoo College in June of 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music, as well as in Spanish Language and Literature. I am now pursuing my Masters of Education in Instruction and Curriculum at Grand Valley State University here in Grand Rapids, which will allow me to soon become a certified a K-12 music teacher!!

Until the pandemic hit, I worked as a piano instructor for the Gilmore Keyboard Festival's after school piano program at 2 different elementary schools in Kalamazoo, MI. I have also served as a volunteer English (as a foreign language) teacher at a 6-12 school in Ecuador when I studied abroad there for seven months, as well as a at a bilingual Spanish/English immersion elementary school in Kalamazoo, MI.
