In lessons, I strive to keep the atmosphere collaborative rather than dictatorial. I encourage you, the student, to ask questions, and I believe it's imperative for you to understand why what you're learning is important. I do my best to make you feel comfortable trying new things and making mistakes. Ultimately, learning vocal technique requires a delicate balance of putting your trust in the teacher without abandoning individual thought. Knowing this, I try to engender the necessary trust inmy knowledge while collaborating with you to incorporate your own words, metaphors, thoughts, and feelings into your approach. I hope to encourage you to trust me, but not depend on me. I'll equip you with a process—with a solid technique and an understanding of why it will help you, with a good idea of how to practice, with the tools to achieve proper diction and translation without always having to parrot my pronunciation, and of course with the ability to read music and learn new songs without my note-for-note supervision. I don’t hesitate to give my students as much help as they need, but as you grow more advanced and experienced, I become increasingly focused on helping you understand how much you can accomplish in your at-home practice sessions without me. This increases the rate of your progress and ensures that you will not be helpless if you need to stop taking lessons at some point. Singing is great fun, but at times it can seem like hard, frustrating work. Music lessons can either be a huge coup for a person’s sense of self, or they can tear it down and make that person feel inadequate. Knowing this, I strive to keep lessons fun, above all. I believe in my students' talent, and I do my best to be encouraging and supportive, and to instill a sense of pride and achievement.

I have taught private piano lessons for a year. I view piano studies in a comprehensive way--theory and piano performance reinforce one another and I strive to communicate this link. Introducing students to proper practice techniques is so important and I explain to them why they are important. I like to be clear about the significance of the balance between hard work and enjoyment. These too reinforce each other and it is hard for one to progress if time is not dedicated to the other. I encourage students to enjoy themselves, apply themselves to practicing so they can achieve their goals, and to push their limits. To help them reach for more in their piano studies, I show them how far they have come and to really appreciate their accomplishments.

I am an experienced and effective instructor who loves working with students of all different backgrounds and sharing my knowledge of singing. I have trained with voice teachers including Marlena Malas (vocal coach of Luciano Pavarotti) and Gran Wilson. I have been able to perform recitals and operas throughout Lincoln Center including Alice Tully Hall and have sung with companies such as Chautauqua Opera, Maryland Opera Studio, Washington Arts Club, Aspen Opera Theatre Center, Encore Chorale Institute, and Manhattan School of Music.      www.sammyhuh.com

My teaching method is universal and is for all ages and levels, with different approach to children. I have methods for breathing, relaxing muscles, tongue techniques, posture, hand position which are fundamentals of learning both instruments. My approach to children begins with fun and simple pieces and some game like techniques for their practices at home. Once they are comfortable with fundamental techniques, i will move on to solo repertoire and more difficult pieces to prepare them for recitals. For adults, depending on what their goals and interests are, I will tailor my instruction to their needs and will make sure the lessons are engaging and still fun. No matter what age or level, learning music can take you to a wonderful new world and can change your life.

Instruments:

Playing music has been such a large part of my life, my goal is to try and cultivate that experience in my students. First and foremost, the student needs to enjoy themselves! How can someone make beautiful music if they do not enjoy music lessons? I believe that music can be learned by building one lesson on top of the other, so each lesson will have a specific, reachable goal in mind, which will usually build on what was worked on the previous lesson. Of course, the lessons are all about the student, so everything is designed with their needs in mind, and going at their own pace is the best way to ensure that they are learned in a comfortable environment.
