Overview:
I love passing on the gift of music to others and am excited to share your musical journey with you! I started my journey at age 7, where I started playing piano and then violin at age 9. It taught me music theory and music basics. When I was 9, I got involved in my elementary school choir and haven't stopped singing since! I got involved in middle school in my community theaters performance program, doing sometimes 4-6 shows a year. I majored in musical theater in college at SUNY Fredonia, where I studied voice extensively. I also love singing country, jazz and everything in between. I started my teaching journey in college, teaching children at my community theater camp for the summers. I’ve had the opportunity to perform in NYC in off-Broadway as well as with choirs, performing at Lincoln Center and The Kennedy Center. I currently reside in Manhattan and perform regularly with my wedding trio that performs all types of music for weddings and events.
EXPERIENCE
I began teaching at the Erie Playhouse Summer Youtheatre Camp on my summers home from college. The students were ages 5-16 and we taught them basic music theory, as well as numerous musical theater and jazz standards throughout the week. We focused on proper vocal technique and placement as well as theory. In New York City, I taught babies and toddlers for a company called MoonSoup. The children were ages 3 months - 6 years and we learned simple songs and melodies. I believe regular practice and getting as much experience as you can in various styles is key. I never restricted myself to one style of music, and if you don't want to, you don't have to. I did musical theater shows, but also performed in classical choirs and church choirs, teaching me various types of musical styles. I currently perform with an NYC based trio, and we perform all types of musical genres. I want the student above all to have fun and enjoy what they are doing, and if they aren't I'm not doing my job! I want them to feel fulfilled after every lesson and direct that music in whatever avenue they want to explore. All music is great music!
METHODS USED
For younger students, I believe learning basic music theory is a great foundation for understanding music and will overall help your musicality. Scales and warmups are extremely important in a new student as well, as they develop your voice and breathing in order to sing more challenging material in the future. I really enjoy the book "Singing Lessons for Little Singers" as it provides a great background on theory, breathing, and correct vocal placement. For adults, I want to understand and learn what the student is interested in, and guide my lessons based on that. Everyone might be at different levels and that's great! I also want to introduce scales, breathing exercises and teach some theory as well, as they lay the groundwork for successful vocal training.
LESSON STYLE
I believe in always cheering on my students and creating a warm and loving environment to help them grow! No matter what their age is, encouragement is key. Acknowledging their progress is what is going to move them forward and continue to learn and practice more. Constructive criticism is of course necessary, but it's important to focus on what the student is doing correct, and then build upon that and what they can do better. It's extremely rewarding to see a student progress, and I always like to focus on the fact that it's a journey not a race. As long as you are making progress and committing, you are doing a great job!

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.
