ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

BM, Duquesne University, Vocal Performance

Overview:

I graduated from Duquesne University with my BA in Vocal Performance. My concentrations were in Classical and Jazz. I have been teaching private and group voice lessons for 5 years. I graduated from Duquesne University with my BA in Vocal Performance. My concentrations were in Classical and Jazz. I have been teaching private and group voice lessons for 5 years. I took vocal pedagogy classes and started with my first student in 2011. From there, I have had many students of various ages in my private studio, online, and at larger schools.

EXPERIENCE

Five years ago, while in college, I took a Vocal Pedagogy class to fulfill my course load as a Vocal Performance Major. During this course, I was required to take on a few vocal students and I still have those same students till this day. I found a deep passion for passing on knowledge to other who love this art form as mush as I do. I enjoy mixing structure with humor to keep stress low and productivity high. If a student isn't having fun and gaining confidence, then I'm not doing my job. I'm extremely excited to bring on students of various ages and abilities!

METHODS USED

In teaching voice, I am sensitive to the delicate nature of young voices and supporting mature voices as well. I teach total musicianship, including tonal memory, scales, sight-reading, and repertoire. Each of my students come with varying ages, genres, and levels, so I create personalized lesson plans for each of my students based on theirs needs. I always encourage my students to bring in material they'd like to work on, from school band music to popular tunes they are interseted in learning. I ask my students to plan their practice time each week and progressing as the material advances.

LESSON STYLE

I believe that the first step to singing is confidence. Therefore, I focus on building up my students confidence and knowledge to give them the ability to face performances and auditions. I love working with students of all ages and it is extremely rewarding to watch them flourish as the months go by. Having a classical background will prepare you for any type of music you'd like to play down the road, so I believe in teaching the basics first and then encouraging my students to branch out, according to their own interests. I take an individual approach to each student and each lesson. Every time I see you, we'll review and then take a step forward. I strongly believe in going at the right pace for you and your 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. 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.
