I have been teaching vocal music privately for 5 years. I have experience teaching male and female voice students of various ages and ability levels in musical theatre, classical, jazz, pop and rock. Many of my former students have been selected to sing in all-state choruses in various states and have continued to study vocal music and theatre at schools across the country including the Hartt School of Music, The University of Vermont, Full Sail University and Plymouth University. I love working with both children and adults.

  If someone were to observe a lesson of mine, they would find that my students actually have to work in lessons. I don’t simply give out all the answers. Not every action receives a “good job” or a “that was great,” because lessons are not just about making the student feel good. My students are challenged, make mistakes, learn, and improve. We spend as much time as necessary learning about theory concepts that are crucial for understanding the language of music. I do my best to get to know my students, how they best learn information, that way I can provide them with the most helpful instruction.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
