Throughout her musical career, Monique has had the opportunity to share her knowledge and skills with others through performances and private lessons.
In elementary school, Monique became the keyboard player for her 6th grade Jazz Band. The group performed several times at the school and for local nursing homes and senior centers.
At the age of 13, Monique began teaching lessons for young children in her neighborhood and has continued to teach ever since.
While in high school, Monique auditioned for and became the piano accompany player in the East Valley Youth Symphony. As a memeber for the symphony, she attended weekly practices and participated in multiple on-stage performance across the Phoenix area.
Now, at 22 years old, she continues to teach piano lessons on the side (she also has a full-time job working as a social media coordinator/public relations assistant, utilizing her journalism degree from Arizona State University).
This blog will not only discuss methods and techniques for making lesssons fun and engaging, but will build off the knowledge of other piano teachers and serve as a platform for colaboration of new ideas.
Monique would love to hear your strategies, tips and advice for teaching music to children of all ages.
