Overview:

Hi, my name is Gitana! I earned my degree in Music Education with an emphasis in Voice from Midwestern State University in 2011. I was first trained in classical music and prepared for a career in opera. But as life tends to do, things changed and I've been working in musical theatre for the last 7 years as a musical director and performer. I have a wide range of knowledge in all types of genres of music, from jazz, pop, musical theatre, and classical, I've sung and taught it all. I also work professionally in theatre so I have real-world experience in the industry. I would love to be your teacher to help you in your musical journey, whether you're brand new to singing and music, or a seasoned professional! Even if you think you're tone deaf (you're not), let's work together to accomplish your musical goals!

EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching voice and music lessons for well over a decade now (I can't believe it's been that long). I first started teaching privately when I was 18 and have been teaching ever since. I have had experience in the classroom but found that my true passion lies in building individual relationships with my students to help them accomplish their goals. Some of my students have gone on to study abroad, earn Broadway contracts, or become sought-after performers. But many of my students are just people who love music and want to hone their craft. As someone who also takes lessons myself, I understand what it's like to be on the opposite side of the piano and bring that empathy and understanding into every lesson I teach!

METHODS USED

My method for teaching varies from student to student. Because every student is different, my approach for each of my students is also different. For younger students, my goal is to create musical competency and I emphasize reading music early on. As my students get older we start working toward goals that I help to set with my students. I personally think that creating lifelong music lovers is more important than creating great virtuosos, so I will never push or teach any student who tells me that they no longer enjoy music or lessons.

LESSON STYLE

My teaching style is incredibly eclectic but personal. I think I do my job better if I can reach my students on a personal level so I often ask about your week and what's going on in your life! For my voice students, I encourage full-body connections and not just focusing on the voice. This means that during lessons, I may ask by voice students to do crazy things and make interesting shapes with their bodies. All of my instruction is personalized to the student, but all of my students should expect lots of feedback (both negative and positive), but I love any excuse to tell my students just how awesome I think they are and love to give praise when appropriate.

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

Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
