Music Teacher, Texas and Georgia
Jorja Davis BA(Ed), MSLIS, MEd(ECE)
“I love music, love to play music, and would love to help you do the same. I want you to play the music you enjoy and to help you learn the skills and enough theory to take you to the level you want to achieve.“
Jorja is a lifelong learner and lover of music and music making. She began playing piano long before she began taking piano lessons at the age of six and began singing before she could talk. Her first three piano teachers are listed as founding members of the Texas Music Teachers Association. She took piano, voice, flute, music theory, church music, and education classes at West Texas State University (Now West Texas A&M), University of Florida, University of South Florida, University of Alaska, Alaska Methodist University, University of Illinois, Catholic University, Baylor University, Sam Houston State University, and privately from teachers in Texas, Germany, Maryland, and Connecticut.
She has made music as a soloist and as an accompanist, in small ensembles and large groups. All made her a better musician, a life-long learner, the best teacher for children and adults, the perfect teacher for anyone with special needs or complicated lives. She is flexible, student-oriented, and interactive. More interested in student learning styles and genre interests than in specific method books or teaching pieces. Jorja has taught children 3 to 18, adults 19 to 90, individually and in groups.
She learns as much from her students as they learn from her. Her current studio accommodates individuals and students needing flexibility in scheduling and learning. Each student hears phrases like “Give yourself a little grace.” “Show me how you would practice this.” “There is more music in the world than you can ever learn, so there is no point in learning something you don’t like. We can learn these skills with a different piece of music. Thank you for trying it anyway.” “Tell me what’s going on in your head when you choose to share it that way.” “The goal of learning this piece is____________.” “What have you learned from this?” “You have 10 minutes left in your lesson. Do you want to start a new piece or play a game?”
