For beginning voice students, I focus on opening and relaxing the throat by way of diaphragm support and healthy, strong breathing. These are the fundamentals of good singing, regardless of the style. We work on these techiniques with both vocal exercises and repertoire. From there, I focus on the student's quality of tone and helping them find their "natural voice." The best singers use their authentic sound, and are not a second-rate imitation of someone else. Once a student is ready, I work on overall musicality and polishing, i.e. phrasing, diction, emotion of a piece, etc.  For beginning piano students, I use Alfred's Basic Piano Library for both children and adults. One of the most challenging steps of learning to play the piano is the coordination of muscles in the fingers and hands. To ease this struggle, I use Hanon's Piano Virtuoso method drills.

I have loved music from a very early age and I have been fortunate to study a variety of  instruments and musical styles.  I grew up studying the drums, piano, guitar, voice, and songwriting.  I have been in a cover bands, original bands, jazz bands, choirs, a country band, a steel drum band, marching band, opera, a pop orchestra, a hip hop ensemble, and musical theatre productions.  In college I took my studies further by learning music theory and aural skills while still performing in ensembles and writing lots of music.  Now I teach and perform around Chicago!  My studio is equipped with a keyboard, acoustic and electric guitars, and a cajon, as well as various percussion instruments.

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's important that each student develops at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for students in each lesson. Acknowledging progress encourages a student to excel, therefore aiding them to yearn for more. By finding out what inspires the student, I can begin to tailor instruction to better fit their needs.

I started teaching private students 12 years ago when I was a senior in high school. My experience comes largely from the time I spent teaching at Imperial School of Music in Geneva, IL.

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.
