Overview:

 I am a very dedicated teacher interested in sharing my love of music with others.  I graduated from Marshall University in 2011 with a Master of Art's degree in Vocal Performance, I have a BA in Music; Voice and Choral Music Education from West Lberty University 2009 and I am certified in Adult Learning and Education ( Capella University 2013).   With extensive experience as a soloist, chorister, and teacher;  I have been featured as a soloist for many works including   Vivaldi's Gloria, Alan Hovhaness’ Glory to God, Handel's Messiah,  Theodore Dubois Seven Last Words of Christ, and several world premiers by rising composers including Evan Mack’s Dream of Freedom and John Sherwood’s Introduction to a Romanian musical. I have given several workshops in classrooms on African Dancing and Drumming and presented lectures on opera, singing in various genres, and life as music major. I serve  as an adjudicator for WV region VI solo and ensemble festivals and maintain professional memberships in National Association of Teachers of singing ( NATS),  National association for the study and performance of African American Music, (NSPAAM) National association for music education (NAfME), and American Choral directors association ( ACDA).     

EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching  Voice for 7 years now and I really enjoy myself and seeing my students learn, and grow in their voices.  My motto is "Music is Life" and I make all of my lessons worthwhile and very fun. After all, Music calms the soul and should be fun.

METHODS USED

My Methods are very holistic. I don't just teach music, I teach life long skills.  Using fun and innovative methods I teach music a long with movement to help the learning process.

LESSON STYLE

Teaching a so much fun for me and I convey that to my students as well. A typical lesson with me, is spent talking about the individual student ( Emotions, concerns etc) A 5-10 minute warmup depending on age and level.  Then starting with a known piece and finally working on new reportorie.

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.
