I'm a unique and creative teacher who's passionate about developing the all-around musician.  In 2012, I graduated from the  Eastman School of Music with degrees in Viola Performance and from the highly acclaimed Music Education program.  My time in school helped me to understand the necessity of properly developing musicianship as well as the technical skills required to play an instrument.  This leads to more valuable and enjoyable lessons for the students.  I am also an active performer; my chamber group has performed and competed all around the country, including an appearance on the public radio.

I began my teaching experience at Brigham Young University, where I taught voice as well as advanced sight singing to students with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences privately and in group settings. Since then, I have taught private voice to students of all ages and experience levels and beginning piano. In addition, I have been the choir director of a church, where I also played the piano and organ My goal is to always inspire students in the brief period of time we have together to work on their own time and apply the techniques discussed during the rest of the week. I believe in achieving this through constructive feedback, and for this reason, I am always careful to point out the techniques the students are applying successfully in addition to what they need to work on. I want my students to enjoy creating music and always feel good about what they are able to achieve. I also believe in teaching a natural, healthy and strong technique to serve as a solid foundation that will work for any musical style. My goal for each student is for them to gain a passion for music and have fun during our time together. I enjoy sharing my love of music and watching students progress in both their musical development as well as their appreciation for music.

I pride myself on instilling a passion for music and music making in my students. To do this, I make my lessons responsive to the particular needs of each student and I consciously draw attention to what a student does well as well as what a student can improve. In this way, my students develop a strong desire to refine and polish their playing and listening while acknowledging and enjoying what they do well. Music cannot be fun if the only feedback a student gets or a teacher gives is critical. I stress the importance of comfort at the piano: no pain, no gain is never applicable to becoming a better pianist! Therefore, I encourage my students become very aware about how their physical gestures influence the sound that they produce. This ensures that students are confident and in control when approaching new, more difficult pieces of music. I always work to establish a trusting and personal relationship with my students so that lessons are effective, fun, and educational!

Yes for teaching piano I use Nancy and Randall Faber's books. I have used all of them. For guitar and mandolin I generally do not use a "book". As the lessons progress I might introduce a book if that is what is called for. All orchestral instruments call for the structure of a book and I augment that with my own explanations. This is true for all ages of learners. For singing, at first, I concentrate of vocal formation and physical posture before and songs are introduced. Then we choose music that the learner is excited about. Fun is always the important aspect.

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.
