Overview:

I am an enthusiastic and motivated instructor who loves working with others to share my love of music. I have devoted my career to teaching both in the classroom and in a private setting. I graduated from Ithaca College with a degree in Vocal Performance and Music Education, and am currently the Choral Director for a local school district. Throughout this time I have performed in several mainstage operas, accompanied a variety of ensembles in different settings, and maintained a career as a Choral Director.

EXPERIENCE

Teaching has always been my passion, and I am extremely motivated to engage students in music. I am currently completing my 4th year as Choral Director in the Rensselaer City School District, as well as running the school Glee Club. I have taught voice, piano, and guitar at performing arts schools and privately for the last 8 years, and have found a variety of ways to encourage my students in their study of music. I strongly believe that there must be an element of fun in music instruction, and whether this means finding the right song to inspire a student's interest, or creating a reward or game system with younger students, I work to find ways to make lessons and practicing a positive redeeming experience.

METHODS USED

My essential philosophy of music education is that with engagement come success. The students who have made the most progress in my experience are those that have enjoyed the process. In order to do this, I customize my instruction to each student. With vocal students, we begin with the basics of technique, implementing them into recognizable songs that suit the students' interests. For piano, I often recommend the Alfred or Bastien series. With any instrument, I strongly believe in incorporating some elements of music theory as well as developing sight reading skills.

LESSON STYLE

One of my great joys in teaching is seeing one of my students feel pride in their accomplishments as a musician. To this effect, I make sure to maintain a high level of energy, engagement, and encouragement within the lesson setting. I work to increase the confidence of my students by developing a strong rapport with them and giving them ample opportunity to succeed. With younger students I find a reward system very effective in encouraging practicing. All students need opportunities to perform, as this acts as a strong motivator towards success. I firmly believe in taking an individualized approach to instruction and learning about the student in order to develop the best teaching plan for them.

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.
