Regardless of the instrument, or level at which my students perform, I always incorporate ear training, music theory exercises, and games into each lesson. With the help of method books and other sources of inspiration, I cater the curriculum to each student's strengths and weaknesses. Live performances are crucial to fully understanding any instrument, and so I encourage my students to perform live as much as possible--and I help them find those opportunities. I also make sure each student is well-organized, and make sure to keep a log of all assignments and lessons, so parents can see if the student is truly progressing.

Although every student is different, I typically start with Fundamentals. I firmly believe the key to healthy, full singing lies in the basics. Then we'll begin to work on solo repertoire that is appropriate to the student's ability and age level. With all my students, I think it is important to learn and strive to improve, but also have fun!

I began teaching piano 10 years ago while attending Texas Tech University.  I have taught students ages 3 years old to 65 years young!   Additionally, I have been teaching voice for 8 years.  I have taught privately, taught at middle schools and high schools, and even was an adjunct professor at NYU from 2008-2010 while I was in graduate school.

The first lesson is more diagnostic in nature. I take time to test range, breathing, ear and musical knowledge. I like to really get a sense of the students goals and desires so that I can make sure my instruction will provide what the student is looking for. . I pick one piece of music for the student that works on technical aspects that need to be improved. The student then picks a piece that they have always wanted to work on or are interested in so that the lessons stay balanced. I believe that a student must enjoy their lessons in order to stay engaged and improve. Recitals are offered every six months and students are encourage to participate as it gives them a goal to work towards, a great experience and is a good way to really see the progress they are making in their lessons. I also believe it allows students to meet other people who are also passionate and excited to learn music.

I began teaching during the time I was in college. I love to inspire students with my own love of music! I also use positive reinforcement (such as stickers) to motivate my younger students to practice and perform their songs successfully. I teach a combination of classical and more contemporary music as well as music history and music theory. I also teach my students to compose and improvise their own songs as well as play by ear. My students are encouraged to participate in at least two performances per year. I am always looking to teach new students and share my love of music!

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.
