Instruments:

I first started teaching piano and flute/piccolo back when I was in high school. When I started, I mainly focused on helping my fellow students prepare for performances and competitions. When I was in college, I was offered a temporary teaching position to teach piano at Allegro Music Academy (Lemont, IL) and I was able to work with children of all ages and playing levels. I realized that I really enjoyed working with children and from that point on, I sought out to teach mainly children. I do enjoy teaching adult students as well and I do appreciate that adult students are usually more motivated to learn music than children are. Over the years, I've had the pleasure of sharing music with bothchildren and adults and I hope to continue doing so for years to come.

Instruments:

I provide a structured yet stress-free environment when teaching. I custom make the lesson plans to meet the need of each student, and I play or sing each assignment, then have the student go through everything once before doing it at home. I am also available by phone if a student needs to contact me regarding a problem with their lesson at home. I also include in each lesson music computer time which works on their ear-training, music history and other theory as needed. Prizes earned for quality weekly homework practicing.

Every musician has some strength which can be developed and built upon. In some students it can be recognized as talent. In others it is enthusiasm and dedication to study and improve. It can also be curiosity and the joy in discovering new ways to express oneself. I love finding my students where they are and helping them toward mastery of their craft. A good music teacher listens. And listens. And listens. From the first lesson I am very interested to hear where the student is in their own practice. (Not even complete beginners are the same; everybody has a unique perspective and personality that informs how they "speak" in music.) The next task is to hear where the student wants to go. How much, how fast, and how far are they are willing and able to work toward their personal goal? These questions are the starting point of every relationship. It is also the starting point of every session. In lessons, I listen to the student progress through warm ups, exercises, and repertoire. Each of these three elements - warm ups, exercises, and repertoire - can be used for instruction and encouragement.

The Benefits of Classical Voice Training

...I’ve been told (like so many young children who seem to possess some vocal talent) that I learned to sing before I learned to speak. I didn’t grow up with any desire to have classical voice training or pursue opera as a career. I performed in community musical theatre productions and only wanted to sing the latest pop hits in my spare time. However, at the start of my freshman year of high school and inspired by the self-evaluation that only beginning a new school year can bring, I had a serious sit-down with my parents to discuss the possibility ...

...of pursing singing in college (and eventually as a career). They wisely suggested taking classical singing lessons to help create a strong technical foundation so that I could potentially learn to sing anything I wanted, whether it be opera, musical theatre, pop, or jazz.   I didn’t go into these new voice lessons with the expectation of becoming a classical singer, and my voice teacher never forced that idea on me. Rather, over the course of a couple of years of consistent lessons, I fell in love with classical music and eventually decided that I sang my best when performing ... Read More

...operatic repertoire. I’ve since echoed the importance of classical voice training in my own teaching after having experienced the benefits of my classical technique firsthand. I’ve performed an abundance of non-classical opportunities as a result of my technique, such as singing backup vocals for a hip hop album or taking on a contemporary, “belty” musical theatre role. I was hired for these jobs largely because the professionals who hired me trusted my abilities as a singer due to my classical background.   Classical technique is commonly used among voice teachers as a healthy foundation for any style of singing because ...

The Benefits of Learning About Audio Engineering

...to create a practice space that accurately represents the sound they are making. Correctly hearing the instrument you are playing is essential to progressing and developing a consistent style and expression. If the room in which you are playing creates an unbalanced representation of the sound, then you will incorrectly alter the tone and style of your playing to compensate. While the differences may be minimal, over time they can lead to bigger changes in playing. Capitalizing on these minor influences and paying attention closely to the details is critical to becoming an amazing musician rather than just a good one. ... 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.
