Mahi Patil, Vocal Head Teacher
Freshman at Vanderbilt University
I’ve been singing since I was about four years old and it’s a huge part of my life. It’s my biggest passion and the most expressive outlet for my emotions. QuaranTunes has given me the opportunity to share my love for music with others. It is the most wonderful feeling to be able to help someone else discover their own unique sound. Not only is teaching through QuaranTunes making me a better musician, but also a better person. I’m able to understand the needs of my students and challenges they face much more thoroughly. My interactions with my students are easily the best part of my day. I think becoming a vocal teacher for QuaranTunes is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
QuaranTunes was an organization that I never thought I would be part of because I had never taught art online before. But as a teacher I was blown away by how attentive, engaged, and wonderful the kids were, especially considering the classes weren’t in person. It was a real blast to work with all the kids I taught and see them create such beautiful paintings. They gave my summer much more meaning. My brother was a student in my class as well and seeing him grow as an artist really made both of us happy. I don’t think I would have thought about teaching him if it hadn’t been for QuaranTunes. Above all I was so grateful to be given a chance to share my love for surrealism with others. Being a part of the QuaranTunes team really brightened my life and I wouldn’t trade my time as a teacher for anything.
