Happy Valley Music Teacher | Joye Davis
from MMF! Music Teacher Directory
Ages 5 and Up
I am a graduate of Wheaton Conservatory of Music where I received my Bachelors Degree of Music Education. I also have an Orff Schulwerk Level 1 certification from Northern Arizona University. I have been teaching private piano lessons for 25 years. I have also taught Music K-6 in West Chicago, IL and have successfully homeschooled my own children through high school. I enjoy teaching all ages from very young beginners to adults.
I am centrally located in Happy Valley, OR and currently have students traveling from Milwaukie, Portland and the Clackamas area.
My program is tailored to be flexible, adjusting to the learning styles of each student. I use age specific method books (Faber) to solidify music literacy and supplement that with musical games, flash cards, percussion instruments and individual pieces in the styles of music that the students enjoy (jazz, classical, pop songs etc.).
My goal is to create a relaxed and fun environment for you or your child to learn to play the piano and enjoy music.
For Homeschoolers: Because of my education and experience in homeschooling, I am able to document your child's piano lessons as school credit at any level. At the high school level, this documentation is accepted as part of your homeschooler's high school transcript.
"My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Joye for four years, and has a great passion for playing the piano. Last year we changed piano teachers because Joye moved and it was a 20 minute drive without traffic. We started with another great teacher, but my daughter lost interest in piano and kept asking if she could go back to Joye. She truly has a great connection with Joye and has learned so much. We are now making the commute and it is totally worth the drive."
