Instruments:

Olivia realized she was a born musician at the age of four, when her parents found her playing the wedding march on the piano by ear.  Since then, she has developed her natural musical knack with a college degree, years of performance experience in a variety of genres, scoring almost a dozen of films and leading church music at a handful of churches.  When she's not playing music - she enjoys reading, cooking, crafting and biking with her husband.

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing my students having fun learning and playing music. Furthermore, being encouraging and acknowledging their accomplishments builds discipline, confidence and desire to continue to play music. For me, seeing this happen brings me joy!

Teaching, for me, began when I was in high school; I taught summer drumset lessons at McQuaid Jesuit and taught Karate at Martial Arts America. This desire to teach was incorporated with my love of music...leading me to pursue a degree in Music Education. I began performing and competing in fourth grade, which continued into my college years. In my third year of undergraduate work, these elements of music led me as well as three of my percussion buddies to performances and clinics (that we taught) at the New York State School Music Association and the New York State Band Director's Association conventions. These were wonderful opportunities to teach peers and those who have been in the music education field much longer than the four of us. Although teaching large groups is exciting, nothing beats one-on-one lessons with a student. I have had and taught plenty of these lessons for several instruments including flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, french horn, euphonium, tuba, percussion, piano, guitar, and bass guitar. These lessons vary quite a bit in skill level, but they all offered challenges for both student and teacher.

Instruments:

I typically start the first lesson getting to know the students, the habits of their body: pertaining to lip shape, stance, how their fingers support the weight of the instrument, finger placement on keys. Once we build awareness to our body's habits, we use these tools and build from the ground, up. These tools help us to develop a better tone, tambre, and allow us to open up so we support from our diaphragms and produce a strong, projected sound. Once these ideas are attended to, they stay mindful as we continue the journey to becoming artistic players. I like to keep at least one etude and one solo piece on file for lessons, though other exercises are GREAT ways to learn, practice, and improve upon.

I have been teaching students of all ages since high school. While studying at Eastman, I have been responsible for teaching lessons to college-aged students of varying levels and abilities. I have also taught young beginners and older students returning to music. I have found that my wide ranging and diverse knowledge of the piano repertoire helps to engage students and encourages a personal relationship with music. My experiences have taught me the importance of having an adaptable teaching style that changes to help students reach their full potential: It is never enough to simply be a good pianist. I am happy to work with students of all ages and abilities who are eager to learn about playing the piano!

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.
