Overview:

I'm a passionate and motivated musician who loves giving my students the tools necessary for success in a wide variety of musical genres. In 2015, I graduated from University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance. Performing in a number of church groups, choirs, operas, and musicals have been enjoyable experiences in my collegiate and professional career as a musician over the last 12 years. I have also found much enjoyment in singing for punk rock/heavy metal bands, and have intermittently written my own original material.

EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience began in 2013, whilst attending university. Since then I have taught private lessons in students' homes and at studios on a part time basis. My emphasis with students begins with two things: creating a practice routine, and building fundamental singing techniques to create bodily awareness. From a place of bodily awareness and vocal control, students of all ages and musical interests are able to sing a wider array of music with greater success and satisfaction. My students have been predominantly adults that have sang either classical or rock/metal. However, I am enthusiastic about teaching students of all ages, backgrounds, and musical interests, as it is my desire to give any and all aspiring musicians the tools necessary to sing at their full potential!

METHODS USED

My teaching focuses on bodily awareness and fundamental vocal techniques initially; this includes exercises to promote bodily flexibility and release tension in the muscles that can hinder ideal singing. This is paired with vocal exercises that promote use of the voice in a way that allows maximal vocal freedom and health. As the student gains consistency of vocal control and awareness, more time is allotted to working on music. I encourage students to discuss and choose music from the style(s) of their liking, as this keeps the student maximally engaged and allows the student to apply what they've learned to a situation that they can relate to. For younger students, time will also be allotted to learning basic music skills (e.g. rhythm, reading sheet music). Lastly, students are taught acting skills, and work to augment their singing of songs with a degree of acting appropriate to the musical style.

LESSON STYLE

My teaching style heavily emphasizes repetition; I prefer students to work repeatedly on musical phrases and voice concepts to create consistency and make once difficult feats easy. This assures that the student is able to use lessons learned in future situations, and helps them to realize their ability to accomplish goals and challenge themselves toward maximal progress. Furthermore, successful repetition builds confidence that a student is able to succeed and be proud of what they have accomplished. In addition, I hold positive feedback in high regard; this assures a student that their hard work is paying off. Lastly, I seek to be very flexible with the music that my students wish to work on; having relevant goals and being able to apply what they have learned to music that interests them is very motivating and satisfying for the student and teacher alike!

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.
