I love explaining and sharing music with people. I love engaging with students and bringing them from their current level to a higher level of artistic knowledge and musicianship. As an opera singer, recitalist and musical theater performer-I bring a lot of experience and legacy to pass down to my students. I love being able to  empower them to do their very best. I am so blessed to be a teacher and performer!

My teaching experience dates back to my earliest teenage years, when I convinced a local church (and my parents) in Cincinnati, Ohio, to let me teach privately in one of the church rooms. Soon afterwards, I landed a teaching job with Howard Early Music there, one of the more reputable music chains in that area. Since then, I have taught master classes, clinics, and private lessons in theory and improvisation, to various singers and instrumentalists at the college and community level. Throughout my career in both the USA and Asia, I taught private lessons intermittently to all ages, and am currently employed by the University of Rochester as a graduate teaching assistant at Eastman School of Music. I particularly enjoy teaching jazz theory and techniques to classically trained or pop-oriented singers and instrumentalists, thereby expanding their creative palette.

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'm an encouraging and motivating guitar teacher with a casual relaxed approach. Teaching new guitarists is very rewarding to me. To see the light come on and watch a student perform a song, express themselves musically, and create their own composition is an awesome experience. Through formal and self- instructed lessons from age 12, I've learned country, folk, blues, rock, and metal techniques and formed several local bands as lead vocalist and lead/rhythm guitarist. Writing and recording my own music has been a hobby for over 30 years. An active music enthusiast from a young age, I learned clarinet technique and music theory from age 9 through public schools, performing in orchestra and marching band.

I approach teaching music with patience and enthusiasm. I realize that there is an ebb and flow in every person's life and progress cannot be measured in an even intervals. Although I am pleased at a student progress, humanity is vast and always surprising me. Each of us are indeed unique and revered. Even as we learn we can enjoy all the leaps and bumps along the way. As with any teaching method, consistency is attendance breeds the best learning environment. And one thing I tell young learners is that they should never practice. Practice implies work. I want them to play their instruments as a reward for finishing homework for example.

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.
