Overview:
First, thank you so much for stopping by and looking at my profile. I know how hard it is to find a good teacher and I appreciate your consideration. I just moved to the Chicago area in the beginning of 2013 to further my performing career. Curently I sing with Chicago Opera Playhouse and am actively auditioning in the Chicago area. Before moving to Chicago I studied abroad in Weimar Germany with the Lyric Opera Studio Weimar and played Papagena in their production of Die Zauberflöte. I graduated from Ohio University with a Masters in Music and from Marietta College with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre.
EXPERIENCE
During my graduate work I taught voice lessons both through the department of music and through the community music program ACMS. My voice students ranged from young beginning singers just learning the basics of singing to seniors in undergrad preparing large roles. My main philosophy in teaching is to find a students real voice and to develop a healthy and natural sound. Also I think it is very important to make every lesson an enjoyable experience. I firmly believe if a student is stressed or just not enjoying the lesson than they will not sing well, so it's my job to make sure that singing is fun! In addition to my teaching expereience in music I also have worked as a daycare teacher and nanny for over two years. So I am comfortable teaching ages as low as 5 years of age.
METHODS USED
For young children I will start with the basics of music. Laying the fondation for years to come. With young children it is important to not overtax the voice and to consider their attention span. These lesson shouldn't last more than a half hour. For beginning students I want to focus on breath, posture, pure vowels and natural consonants. Also starting to work on musicality in the pieces we choose. Most repertoire will be taken from early italian songs, art song, folk songs, or musical theatre. The students will have a strong influence on what pieces he or she sings. For intermediate students I want to really forcus on text painting and understanding the words. Also we will continue building on basic skills learned as a beginning student. I would also like to work of pieces in different languages if the student is willing.
LESSON STYLE
I beileve music should be fun and you should never come to a lesson worried that your teacher will discourage you for not being perfect. Everyone learns at their own pace and it is important that I respect that. I also love all styles of music and believe they can all benefit from solid technique.

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.
