I’m a positive instructor who thoroughly loves working with students, helping them meet their goals, and enabling them to enjoy music for the rest of their lives! I have a Masters in clarinet performance from Indiana University, but also hold a Bachelors in music education with a current K-12 instrumental teaching license. I’ve been blessed to perform all over the United States, at Carnegie Hall, and in 5 other countries with orchestras, bands, and a drum & bugle corps. Read More

My teaching experience dates back to my college days, as I began teaching college-entrance level music theory classes and private piano lessons. For the past of ten years, I have been teaching classical piano, music theory, ear training, jazz piano, jazz history/theory, and k-12 level school bands including young winds, symphonic band and jazz band. I teach students with different music levels and ages. And I speak Mandarin and English, and I have been teaching bilingually for almost my entire teaching career. Read More
I want to instill a passion for music in my piano students. To do this, I let each student progress at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lession and acknowledging the small accomplishments. By finding out what inspires a student, I can tailor my instruction to keep them engaged and eager to learn. Read More
Instruments: Piano Voice Saxophone Flute Organ Piccolo
There are several different method books that I like to use with my students based on age, knowledge/experience, and of course if the method book they use is something they will enjoy; it's very difficult if a student doesn't like the book they're using so I try to give them options. For beginners, I like to use John Thompson's Easiest Piano Course or the Schuam method books. For additional practice and work, I like to use Schaum's Fingerpower and have the student write out the notes then recite them aloud while playing the exercise. Read More
Instruments: Piano Guitar Bass Guitar Music Electric Guitar Classical Guitar Acoustic Guitar
I started teaching lessons when I was 18 at a music business and taught there between 3 to 5 hours a week for about 5 years. For the past 5 years I have been teaching at IU. I have taught many different styles from classical to jazz to rock, etc. and have also watched many great teachers and tried to learn from their methods. I am currently working on a book to teach the notes and fretboard of the guitar that will hopefully be able to help students of any age or experience. Read More
Instruments: Piano Guitar Voice Trombone Saxophone Flute Clarinet Oboe
As a teacher, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a student develop a passion for music. If my students do not leave every lesson feeling inspired, encouraged, and wanting to practice and play music, then I am not doing my job. Just as I tailor each lesson to match the individual student, expect the student to grow and develop as a musician at his/her own pace. Ultimately, music is universally accessible and I want to foster a love and appreciation for listening to music as well as performing music. Read More
Instruments: Piano Voice Music
When will I start to see results?
It is individual to each student, but I would like to confidently say that after three to four lessons you should start hearing results! It is all about singing in a healthy way, and perfection is unrealistic, so don't be disheartened if it doesn't sound exactly like you want it to sound right away.
Do you use specific teaching methods or books? (Ex: Alfred, Bastion, Suzuki, Hal Leonard) Why did you choose them if you did?
I would like to use specific teaching methods and books I really enjoy Hal Leonard, that is the book that taught me guitar. I also strongly recommend purchasing 24 Italian Songs and Arias or 26 Italian Songs and Arias. It has a great selection of music spanning from more beginning singers to advanced singers. Also, it is beautiful music that is great for auditions!
What do you think is the hardest thing to master on your instrument?
I think the hardest thing to master on my instrument is correct diction (in other languages especially) and fluidity of sound. It takes awhile to get the correct pronunciation of words, as well as to master IPA. Another thing that I have found difficult is the fludity of sound, which means that every tone you sing sounds the same as the next tone. It truly can be what separates a metropolitan opera star from a struggling opera singer in the field! For piano, the hardest thing to master is the dexterity and flexibility. Reading music with more than two sharps or flats can be difficult as well. Practice truly makes perfect with piano. You can't get better at piano without practicing.
What musical accomplishments are you most proud of?
I am most proud of winning the NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) competition back in Colorado. I won in classical category for my age group and got 2nd place in musical theatre category. I was especially proud of this accomplishment because I worked really hard for this. I had already been preparing music for music school acceptance, so I had a lot of time to prepare for the competition. It showed me that I should be proud of how far I had come vocally!
Did you have a teacher that inspired you to go into music? How did they inspire you?
My voice teacher back when I was between the ages of 10-18 inspired me to pursue music! She always believed in me and my abilities, and gave me a great foundation for entering college. She went to Indiana University, as well, so that is how I had even heard of the college in the first place.
How do I know if my child is ready to start lessons?
There isn't a yes or no answer to this question, but I would say once your child is at least 10 years old, and has shown some kind of passion for music/singing, then they are ready to start! A beginning student wouldn't need to have to start learning really complicated pieces or techniques, it is just baby steps at the beginning! For piano, I think that any age is appropriate to start! I know some kids who have started as young as toddlers!
