Instruments:

During the lesson I ask you to play through your music. I will then ask you to play the music in many various ways that will hone the skills in all the areas you are trying to develop. With such first hand experience you will learn a great deal more than just how to play the notes correctly. You will have consequently incorporated artistry, piano technique, theory and ear training.

 Teaching piano is exciting! I began teaching private lessons at age sixteen and have been consistently teaching students for the past twenty-seven years.The families of my students build lasting, warm relationships with me. Most students take lessons for three or more years--many began at elementary age and continued through high school. My students explore a combination of styles and regular practice is absolutely key to learning. I work to make that practice fun, but appropriately challenging according to the student's age level and ability. Focus is placed on learning scales, chords, proper hand/finger techniques, a systematic approach to musical theory, and an emphasis on steady rhythym. As a musician, I perform for weddings, funerals, special occasions, and holiday events. I believe stage performance is an important part of a student's musical education and encourage my students to participate in areas such as recitals, school and church performances, and local bands or music groups. I specialize in teaching beginning students and have worked with youth of all ages, including children with special needs. I believe every individual can find enjoyment in learning piano!

For beginning students, I typically start with Hal Leanord's Essential Elements. Once the student has a grasp of their instrment and the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire and tecnique exercises. I will try to find out what the student is interested in to help guide my instruction and keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter the age or ability level.

I first started teaching when I was 17 years old. Then I went to college for training into this area of teaching. I was also involved with the Bradley University Chorus. Some of my teachers included Ralph Nielsen, father of Rick Nielsen of the group Cheap Trick, Mary Weyhrich, Marilyn Cade, and Jan Wanach. My school provides opportunities for two recitals, Christmas caroling, music scholarships and I am the Rockford Founder of the Carnegie Hall National Voice and Piano Exams. Also composition is offered.

I really enjoy seeing my students enjoy learning music as that brings me back to my memories of learning. I find it is important to allow students to work at their own pace so they will not become frustrated and lose interest in what I am teaching them. With that I feel it is important to take as much time as the students needs in order for them to grasp what they are being taught as I feel it will hurt them down the road later when they start to get into playing the music as it will get harder down the road. It is important for students to grasp the basics of learning to play the piano as this will build a good foundation for learning the more intermediate or advanced music down the road.

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.
