I love explaining and sharing music with people. I love engaging with students and bringing them from their current level to a higher level of artistic knowledge and musicianship. As an opera singer, recitalist and musical theater performer-I bring a lot of experience and legacy to pass down to my students. I love being able to empower them to do their very best. I am so blessed to be a teacher and performer!
I have been teaching voice and piano for ten years; beginning with my senior year in high school and now as a professional musician. I have taught at several colleges, conservatories and universities; as well as frequently engaging students in master classes of both the Opera and Music Theater genres. I really enjoy meeting students where they are at-finding out their individual needs and goals; and designing a curriculum specific to each student!
I think it's important for students to learn from all styles of music; but if they enjoy one style in particular, I believe it's important to study this style with them and help them to improve upon it. I love understanding what makes each individual unique; so I really listen to them and design a curriculum based on their likes; challenging them to appreciate all styles of music; and encouraging them to become fluent in various genres, time periods and methods. Sometimes, we start at the very beginning; sometimes; we continue the necessary building blocks of technique and artistry that contribute to making a well rounded artist.
I love to see my students become successful! I do my best to tailor each lesson to their specific needs and goals. I will always encourage and bring them up to a new level; but I am very encouraging and want them to have fun. I will teach a person as many ways as I can to get them to understand a concept; relying on intuition and the multiple intelligence theory. I am one hundred percept devoted to making the students enjoy learning and feel enthusiastic about the process!
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.
