Overview:
I am an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher, and I love sharing my love of music with my students. I earned my Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance from Indiana University and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from Brigham Young University. I enjoy singing onstage and have performed the role of Susanna in Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro as well as numerous scene programs. I have participated in Dolora Zajick's Institute for Young Dramatic Voices, Chicago Summer Opera, and the Sherrill Milnes VoicExperience Program at the Savannah Voice Festival.
EXPERIENCE
I began my teaching experience at Brigham Young University, where I taught voice as well as advanced sight singing to students with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences privately and in group settings. Since then, I have taught private voice to students of all ages and experience levels and beginning piano. In addition, I have been the choir director of a church, where I also played the piano and organ My goal is to always inspire students in the brief period of time we have together to work on their own time and apply the techniques discussed during the rest of the week. I believe in achieving this through constructive feedback, and for this reason, I am always careful to point out the techniques the students are applying successfully in addition to what they need to work on. I want my students to enjoy creating music and always feel good about what they are able to achieve. I also believe in teaching a natural, healthy and strong technique to serve as a solid foundation that will work for any musical style. My goal for each student is for them to gain a passion for music and have fun during our time together. I enjoy sharing my love of music and watching students progress in both their musical development as well as their appreciation for music.      
METHODS USED
Every singer has a unique voice, and therefore every student must have a unique vocal plan of action tailored to fit their voice and personality. To this end, my goal is to always encourage the student's natural voice by applying a healthy and solid technique through a relaxed larynx, free and steady airflow, and active yet elastic support. The larynx should never be put under undue amounts of stress, and to achieve this, I believe in involving the abdomen, back, and sides to support the sound. The result is a warmer, more beautiful sound and a healthy singer. Other technique basics I teach include and open jaw, raised soft palate, and erect yet relaxed posture. I believe in choosing repertoire for the student that they enjoy singing and that will aid the student's current vocal progress. If the student loves singing the pieces, they will practice more and develop their voice faster! For my young piano students, we start with the John Thompson Easiest Piano Course. We begin by identifying the notes on the keyboard and very simple rhythms then slowly integrating the notes on the keyboard with the written notes on the staff, building up from middle C. For my adult students, we learn from Alfred's Basic Adult Piano course. However, if the student has already found a course they enjoy and feel comfortable with, I am always flexible with the required materials. The most important thing is always finding what method works best for the pupil, tailoring the lessons to suit the pupil's needs, and making learning piano fun!
LESSON STYLE
As a teacher, my greatest accomplishment is helping my students gain a life-long love for music in addition to developing their own individual talents. My goal is to inspire this passion by always creating a positive atmosphere in lessons through encouragement, healthy goal-setting (and achieving!), and strong singing or piano-playing. I also believe that each student has their own unique personality, and my job as a teacher is to adapt my teaching style to suit that individual's needs. I work for my students and am willing to go the extra mile to ensure they get what they need to achieve their goals!

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.
