Overview:

I am a calm, laid-back, yet intense teacher who expects the best from myself and my students.  In almost every aspect of my life, I take an approach developed from my experiences with bodybuilding.  As a competitive bodybuilder in college, I learned that progress requires desire, discipline, patience, self-evaluation, and the willingness to change directions and tweak one's regimen.  I see weakness as simply the absence of strength, which is correctable. The same can be said of weight-lifting, of singing, and of practically any endeavor.

EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching public school for 19 years, all but the first two spent in 9th grade.  I've also had many years of experience as an adult church choir director. The huge majority of my singers along the way would probably tell you that I made them very comfortable.  Tension is the singer's worst enemy.  Tension is caused by fear, by uncertainty in one's ability, or by faulty technique. A great singer makes singing seem easy.  I've spent my whole teaching career simply trying to make singing easier for people.  Throughout my years of teaching, I've always been an active and successful singer, so I am always prepared to practice and to demonstrate that which I teach.

METHODS USED

I never teach two people exactly the same way, because each singer is unique.  Each singer has an individual set of physical, mental, and emotional characteristics.  My goal as a teacher is to address each of these three categories, allowing my singers to grow in each of them.  I will tailor my instruction to meet the needs of my students, to draw from their own experiences, and to use analogies and examples from the things they know and love.

LESSON STYLE

There has never once been the perfect performance, the perfect voice, or the perfect song.  In music, we chase the unattainable.  But it's the journey toward that unreachable goal that allows us to grow as singers and as human beings, capable of expressing ourselves through the miracle of singing.

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.
