I began teaching music right out of college with my BM in Music Education from Dallas Baptist University. Upon graduating with multiple academic and music education honors I taught elementary school music for two years before opening A Joyful Noise Studio. I am reestablishing my student base due to my recent move to San Marcos, TX, and looking for some hardworking, happy students age three through adulthood. I am a Texas certified music teacher (TeXes Music EC-12 and all-level PPR) and keep up to date with my contemporaries through attending workshops, concerts, and yearly conferences. I pride myself on being a people person and a natural teacher. It's my absolute favorite thing! In your private lesson I will of course provide the basics: foundational practices, technical skill, theory and musicianship. But more than that I hope to establish a rapport with you that increases your self-confidence and love of music. I don't remember everything my instructors taught me, but these things do hold true beyond the bounds of time. Come and learn with me today!
