Overview:
I have always been a musician first and everything else second.  I have found fulfillment in sharing music with others as a teacher, performer and music therapist.  I graduated in May with my master's in voice from the Eastman School of Music.  I hold bachelor's degrees and certifications in music education and music therapy.  Currently, I am teaching all levels of voice, beginning to intermediate piano and violin and beginner guitar while I pursue a career in opera performance.  I have experience with students of all ages including those with disabilities and on the autism spectrum.
EXPERIENCE
I began teaching lessons in college, but grew my studio while I was preparing for grad school auditions from 2010-2012.  Most of my students at that time were beginner piano lessons and I love to teach young children.  I also greatly enjoy teaching children with autism.  I have had success in combining my music education and music therapy skills to help students accomplish musical goals while also addressing behavioral goals such as increasing verbal or nonverbal communication.
METHODS USED
My goal is to foster a love of music through mastery, excellence and fun!  I never want lessons to feel like something that has to be done, but rather, something to look forward to.  I accomplish this by incorporating the interests of each student and including time in each lesson to improvise, create, or learn music they are interested in.  I tailor my instruction to each student and keep track of progress so we know how to proceed.
LESSON STYLE
My teaching style is defined by a combination of high standards, understanding, nurture and patience.  I will set realistic goals for each student based on his/her abilities.  I will encourage and try new ways to explain or demonstrate a skill that the student is having difficulty with and I will be extremely enthusiastic about their accomplishments.  However, I will assertively make it known if the student shows that they have not been practicing in a supportive way.  I give my students tips and instructions on how to practice.  Assignments are not removed from their practice list until they have been mastered.

No credit card required.

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
