I have been living, teaching, and performing music in Austin for the last 8 years. I sing and play guitar with Sara Shansky and the Titanic Dance Band.  I grew up in Rhode Island, went to Tufts University for my bachelors degree, and spent a few years on the west coast playing music and falling in love. My husband and I just had our first baby in August of 2012 and I'm sure he will be a music lover too!

I grew up in Stephens City, VA, where I started playing drum set professionally at age 16. Piano, guitar, and songwriting came soon after, and in 2005 I was awarded the Jazz Studies Scholarship from the University of North Texas to study drum set with the world-renowned educator, Ed Soph. At North Texas, I participated in the 6 O'Clock Lab Band, Advanced AfroCuban Ensemble, Chamber Brass Band and Brazilian Ensemble, and soon after, was commissioned to compose original music for the computer game Wriggle Words.. In early 2008, I began touring nationally with a Denton-based band, and now tour nationally with several Austin-based groups. While not on the road, I play with numerous groups in Austin, write and record original music in my home studio, and teach.. I bring my extensive music industry experience into each lesson. While teaching my students their primary instruments, I also strive to make the lessons well-rounded, incorporating theory, ear training, music culture and history.

Singing and music performance has been a lifelong passion of mine, and being able to provide the tools to make singing healthy and fun makes my profession one of great joy! I graduated from Southwestern University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Vocal Performance. I have had the opportunity to perform internationally in operas, young artist programs, concerts, musicals and chorales, and am planning on starting my Master’s degree in the fall of 2016.

My first lesson with every prospective student is an assessment of the student's interest and ability.  From there, each successive lesson builds on current skills.  The primary focus of my instruction is to keep the student challenged, while the lessons remain fun.

Instruments:

For beginning students, I emphasize fundamentals, including technique, sound quality, and reading. With children, I like to start with method books such as Essential Elements or the John Thompson series for piano. For more advanced pupils, I will start with what they are currently working on, find areas for improvement, and then adjust the curriculum accordingly. However, no matter what the students interests or skill level are, I try and keep the lessons light, fun, and interesting!

How To Write a Pop Song

...remembers. The chorus is the part of the Pop song where we get to be louder, more energetic, less restrained. If you’ve written an engaging verse, the chorus should come naturally. Key changes, higher vocal melodies and catchy hooks are good ways to deliver energy to choruses, but it’s not always that simple. Every song is unique and should be treated as such. Invest time in playing around with different chord progressions and you’ll begin to see where a verse is naturally headed. A good chorus is a departure from the verse, but not enough of a change that it distracts from the... Read More

A Case for Early Childhood Music Education

...note names on the lines and spaces of the staff is not going to hold a three-year-old’s attention for more than three minutes, and may be a concept simply too abstract for that age group. But what if he were playing a game with other three-year-olds? Not only would it hold his attention for much longer, but he would also learn from watching and observing other children.   I have taught music classes for children as young as 0 years old.

Choosing Your First Drum Set

...have to work with. Similarly, larger drums will generally be louder (depending on how hard they are played, of course- but beginning drummers tend to be prone to pretty heavy playing). If you live in an apartment, have roommates, or are a parent wary of living with loud drumming, smaller, lighter drums are clearly recommended when choosing your first drum set.   Space and volume restraints lead many to consider an electronic drum set. Some teachers may discourage this- as the subtleties of achieving good tone on the drums are a bit lost, and they generally do not ‘feel’ like real drums- but I believe it ... Read More

Where Can I Take Music Lessons?

... Deciding where you choose to take music lessons can vary from person to person, whether the lessons are for an adult or for a child. This is very important, because the location needs to be one where the student feels comfortable, but it should also be an environment that is conducive to learning. Doing lessons in the home also eliminates travel time for the parents and can be centered around your schedule. Where Can I take Music Lessons?

Must Have String Instrument Accessories

...All violins and violas will have a hard case. Some are very basic, and some much more elaborate. For a beginning student, the basic hard case is more than satisfactory, and will keep the violin or viola safe as it travels. Cellos and basses can come with a hard or soft case. Most beginning students, with student level instruments, will come with a soft case. This helps the student to transport the instrument, but it is important that they learn how to handle it while traveling and storing. String instruments are delicate, and it is important that the student knows how to manage the instrument as to not damage it. Hard cases for cello and bass ... Read More

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.
