Overview:
I'm a passionate and motivated voice teacher who loves to inspire and share my love of singing. I am a recent graduate from Shenandoah University and received my Master's degree in Music Performance with a concentration in Voice. In 2015, I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance in Voice with a minor in Theatre. I have performed at numerous events including weddings, funerals, charities, and more! I have also been in my fair share of plays, musicals, and operas! My favorite roles include Lucy from The Telephone, Papagena from Die Zauberflöte, and Geraldine from A Hand of Bridge.
EXPERIENCE
I began teaching back in college during my sophomore year teaching young students about the world of musical theatre. At the end of the course my colleagues and myself put on a short production of scenes from the musical Annie with the students starring in the production. After receiving my undergraduate degree I began to teach at a local studio teaching mostly young students from the age of 5-11. I focused mainly on proper technique since most of the students I had were young. I also focused on teaching them some music theory so they could read music properly. Breathing was another component I focused on so that students could breath correctly between phrases. Most of the students I had performed in a recital to showcase the work we had done during our time together. One particular student performed in numerous musicals with a local children's theatre company!
METHODS USED
For beginning students who are children, I like to focus on proper technique such as posture and breathing. I also like to use flashcards to help learn basic music theory so that they can read music. I also like to work on songs that peak their interest and songs that are appropriate for their age. For adults, I like to find out what you would like to gain from taking voice lessons, what genre they are most fond of, and instruct them in a way that's fun and engaging, no matter their ability level.
LESSON STYLE
Normally the first few lessons I try to get to know the student and determine the best instruction according to their needs. I love seeing a student succeed and develop a passion for music! I set goals depending on the level for students to work on in the lesson and at home. I also like the student to have some form of recording device so that they can go home and listen to their session and practice effectively at home. I encourage my students to audition for competitions, local theaters and more to develop their self-confidence and get feedback on their progress. I also like to acknowledge accomplishments to help students desire to progress and make them eager to learn more!

Gwen is teaching my 9 year old daughter and my daughter loves it!! Gwen is kind, patient and fun! We started with in home lessons and had to switch to online and I was worried my daughter wouldn’t respond well. But, Gwen keeps her attention very well and keeps my daughter motivated the entire lesson! We Highly recommend Gwen!

Gwen is providing voice lessons for my middle school daughter and it is going extremely well. Gwen is talented of course but more importantly she is kind, patient, encouraging and fun. I highly recommend her and I know my daughter does too.
