Hi! My name is Alese. I am a natural at music. I have been singing since I could talk! I have been writing music and poetry for 7 years. I have been playing guitar for 6 years and piano for 5. I am fluent in ASL (American Sign Language) and English. My current subjects I am teaching are ASL, Guitar, Piano, Songwriting, and Ukulele. I am 18 and I work great with all ages. I have taught as young as 5 and as old as 65. I am mostly self-taught with music.
Because I was self-taught, I became very aware of the student process. I know how difficult it can be to stay motivated. My teaching style is fun and relaxed. I never want my students to feel stressed. I focus very much on individual pace. Some people may learn slower than others, and that is okay! My students are my friends, and as your friend I never want you to feel stressed about your pace or progress.
With all the stress we have in daily life, my goal is to help you develop an outlet through art and language. I am here to help you hone your talent, not to stifle it with non-constructive criticisms.
I was a nanny for a long time to very difficult children. I am experienced with the deaf and hard of hearing. As well as adults/children with Asperger's, autism, dyslexia, and ADHD.
I am so excited to chat! Thank you!
