I take  a physiological approach to singing...after all it is a physical endeavor.  The voice or larynx, despite all it complexities, is just another set of muscles that can be trained to reach its fullest potential.  The method I teach, “The Franco/Italian Bel Canto Method” has been taught in Europe for more than 200 years and has produced the world’s greatest classical singers.  Now, having said that let me assure you that studying this method doesn’t mean you have to become a classical singer.  The techniques used are designed to strengthen and improve the quality of the human voice and can be applied to any genre whether your goal is “Broadway,” “American Idol” or you simply want to improve your voice for your own personal satisfaction.  The method also addresses all things associated with singing, such as breathing, posture and stage presence.

Instruments:

I have been teaching since age 15 (1999). In addition to extensive performing experience on clarinet, I have functioned as a piano accompanist, choir member, and praise band member through the years. As noted above, I teach clarinet, saxophone, flute, and piano. My methods vary according to each individual students' needs and goals, however I try to find the approach that will best help a student to appreciate music in general, sharpen the mind, and give each student a level of skill on their instrument that provides a sense of accomplishment. I keep it interesting and while certain elements tend to crop up in most lessons, sometimes I go into uncharted territory and incorporate something completely new and unexpected. This opens peoples' minds to the possibilities available to them, especially kids! I am always reading books on the subjects of music and teaching (often both), so I am constantly developing my teaching skill as my students develop their instrumental skills.

Instruments:

I gained the degree of doctor of musical arts in clarinet performance and pedagogy from University of Colorado at Boulder. I held a position at Aletheia University for 16 years, and have more than 20 years of experience in teaching students at all ages and levels. During the college years, I have studied children development and pschology, and had research and speech on four Music systems in the world. Beside teaching clarinet, piano and saxophone, I also have experience on Orff, which is an education system to help children learn music in life. Along the years, I hold many solo, camber recitals, and also conduct a clarinet ensemble, and have been performing in Taiwan, Japan, Mainland China and the States. I am a member of TMEA.

I began teaching voice as an independent contractor in 2010 at Joshua High School and Middle School. In 2012, I was hired as a piano and vocal instructor at Stage Notes School of Music in North Richland Hills as well as at the Neighborhood Arts and Music School (NAMS) in Frisco and also began teaching students in my home studio. I insist upon regular, consistent practice, which true musical development demands and without which not only progress but also passion and enthusiasm for the music will suffer. I encourage my students to seek live performance opportunities in order to build their confidence and to overcome the potential for such things as stage fright, timidity, etc. and to attend as many live musical performances as possible for observation and enjoyment purposes.

The Saxophone in Pop Music: 1950s to Today

...Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, the Bee Gees, and many more achieved that sound that is now synonymous with the 70s by utilizing full horn sections (3-5 horns). Bands like Tower of Power had even bigger horn sections. In addition to being an ensemble instrument, the saxophone was featured as a solo instrument on many recordings throughout the 1970s. Perhaps one of the most well-known saxophone solos of all time was Phil Woods’s solo from Billy Joel’s 1977 recording “Just the Way You Are”. Clarence Clemons was a permanent fixture in Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. 1980s... Read More

Elements of a Song

...as long as you present it in a thoughtful, honest way. It’s a good idea not to rush the melody-writing process, so take your time, try out lots of ideas, and you’ll start to see what sticks and what doesn’t. Things like good phrasing and interesting syncopation can help make melodies more memorable elements of a song, and creating music that’s memorable should be the goal of any good songwriter.

Mixing Basics: Intro to Audio Mixing

...listening to a recording in headphones, that each headphone has different levels of each instrument. This spatial positioning of tracks creates room in each speaker for each track so that similar instruments do not dominate each other. It also creates the perception that a band is actually in front of you, with certain instruments to your right and others to your left. While the practice can be used for a number of interesting effects, like creating the impression that a sound is passing in front of you, it is most commonly set in the same manner that a band would appear.

Easy Ear Training: Tips for singing Harmony

...see which part feels more comfortable. The problem that you may run into is when the song changes chords you may catch yourself singing the melody. If you’re not used to singing harmony it’s a very common mistake to fall into singing the lead line. You should know your part like it is the lead line. When you practice make sure you know your line perfect. Let it sink into your whole body. It should resonate within yourself. You should feel your part “fit” in between the other two parts (if you’re singing three part). Another problem that many harmony singers face is if they are singing the low part they ... 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.
