I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA and spent most of my training days in my mom's music and dance studio. I have three older brothers who are equally involved in the arts; a dancer, vocalist, and musician. I have worked with kids in the arts for the past 6 years and absolutely love it. I am able to teach piano, voice, and violin to students of all ages. I have studied with and have been under the direction of many well known and prestigious teachers throughout my life and have taken what they have taught me and formed my own style of teaching.
I began studying piano at the age of 5 and shortly after picked up the violin. The combination of these two have made me a better musician. I studied at multiple institutions and have been a part of multiple orchaestras including Bryn Mawr summer music camp, Luzerne music camp, and Ithaca Suzuki camp. As for voice, I have taken on many roles in musical theatre and have performed many arias. I received much of my training from my mother, Valerie Girard, Sandy Greciano, and Ingrid Zeldin. I attended Manhattan School of Music for pre college to study voice in my junior year of high school, where I was given much classical performance opportunity.
Piano: I am very much classically based, but am able to branch out to styles of students choice. I believe that no matter what, classical is the bases for everything, so the student will be learning more of this before moving onto contemporary works. Violin: I grew up studying the Suzuki method and found that this is the most affective for my students as well. Voice: Again, classical is the bases for voice as well. We will study some classical music and may be singing in different languages to help us when approaching contemporary, musical theatre, pop, etc.
As a teacher, my teaching is very heavily based off of the students needs. I find that many need example and learn small things off of imitation, therefore I am able to provide examples. I have also had students who recieve information better if explained verbally. Overall, I begin with a set warmup each lesson and we then get right to work on repertoire the student is working on or that I have given them to work on. I expect my students to be prepared, ready to learn, and always open to new ideas!
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.Ok
