I love the art of communicating or telling a story through music. I am a professional performer and vocal instructor, and have sung on professional stages such as Mount Baker Theater's repertory theater and the Whatcom Symphony opera series in Bellingham, Washington. I am a classically trained musician and relish singing folk, jazz, and other popular styles of singing. After graduating with my masters in voice performance from University of Nebraska - Lincoln, I decided that the Twin Cities would a fantastic place to extend my love for teaching and get back on the stage.

Instruments:

My philosophy in teaching is that a good understanding of the foundation of music and the instrument will lead to self sufficiency in learning. I aim to teach my students not just to be dependant on myself as the instructor, but to be able to problem solve and learn on their own if they run into a question and an instructor is unavailable. I regularly practice sight reading with my students and keep them critically thinking about their music and what makes it up. Once I feel that the student is at a level to make critical decisions about the music they're making I will ask them to make their own interpretations of the music and help them along depending on style and appropriateness.

In addition to teaching private lessons, I also maintain a career as a freelance cellist. I studied under the tutelage of Dr. Erik Anderson from 2006-2011 while performing in symphonies, jazz combos, and rock bands. During my time as his student I was encouraged to explore as many different avenues to music as possible. Through my experience in a wide variety of genres, I have been fortunate to travel and meet fantastic musicians from all around the country. I enjoy allowing my students to cultivate a passion for a variety of musical styles.

...solid idea of what you’d like to achieve in your guitar lessons for adults before you search for a teacher. Certain instructors bring special skill sets to their lessons, so if you want to learn to read music, write songs, or be able to improvise over some jazz chords, make sure you ask potential instructors if they have any experience in those areas.

...music to facilitate music literacy, but also to promote lifelong musicianship. I accept and am glad that not all who enter into my classroom will grow up to be a professional musician. That would be an incredibly disillusioned view of music education and education on the whole. We do not take math to become mathematicians, nor do we study biology to become doctors. Rather, we study many different subjects to become well-rounded individuals who know and understand the world around us. I teach music so that my students can become well-rounded, individuals who know and understand the musical world around them. In closing, ... Read More

If you need something smaller, the “console uprights” will be less than 43” tall.   The “Spinet” is next in line for upright types of pianos, but you won’t see many of them: they aren’t made anymore. In all honesty, it’s just not a good option for anybody, unless you’re looking for a nice piece of furniture. The one benefit of this type of piano is its ... Read More

Setup of the Five Piece Drum Set

... When starting out, most drummers (and parents) don’t know what is included in the setup of the five piece drum set. The most common configuration for a drum kit used in rock and pop music is the five-piece drum set, the number five referring to the number of drums in the kit (snare drum, bass drum, two high toms, and a floor tom). Along with the five drums, there are usually two cymbals and a hi-hat stand. There are many different set-ups for drum kits, but the standard is the five-piece. In addition to the five piece drum kit, most drummers require other drum and percussion accessories. The drum that is most used is the snare drum. It is the most prominent and ... Read More

...loudest of the drums. This is because metal wires (called snares) are stretched across the bottom drum-head, rattling when the top drum-head is struck. A snare drum used in a drum kit usually measures 13 or 14 inches in diameter. Besides striking the drum-head, many players will click the rim with their sticks. This is called a rim-shot. Snare drums are also widely used in marching bands. The second most used drum is the bass drum, or kick drum. The bass drum sits on the floor and is struck with a foot-operated pedal. Its primary function is to keep time; unlike the other drums, it does not have a set pitch. Bass drums vary in size, but the general measurement is 20 inches in ... 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.
