Overview:

My word for private music teaching is, “uplifting.” The human connection is so key and it’s helping another person make music that’s so amazing and such a joy. My adult and teen students and parents of the children I teach consistently say that the lessons I teach are not only about music, but they are therapeutic as well. My goal is that students make musical progress at each lesson and also feel uplifted and inspired. Students learn best at their own pace and in their own ways. That’s what’s so great about private teaching. Private lessons afford the opportunity to customize to the student’s learning style, mood, abilities, and how much they’ve practiced.

Speaking of practicing, I believe that it’s my job to give students the skills and tools for their musical development in the most supportive environment and it’s the student’s job to meet me halfway. My students understand that lessons are that much more enjoyable for them when they’ve practiced. It’s possible to make progress without practicing, but it’s much slower.

EXPERIENCE

My background includes a Master of Music degree from Westminster Choir College and a Bachelor of Music degree from Mason Gross School of the Arts. I’m privately trained as well in all styles of music from pop to classical. I owned my own music school, “Academy of Music on Main Street” in Central New Jersey for over two decades. I’ve conducted choirs, directed musical theater productions, and have taught early childhood music. I also have my permanent New Jersey certification for K-12 music. I’ve performed professionally in many different capacities including opera, oratorio, musical theater and in an a cappella women’s trio singing pop and jazz standards.

METHODS USED

For piano students ages 5-9, I generally use the Faber and Faber Piano Adventures series. For piano ages 10-12 I use the Older Beginner series. My teen and adult students normally work out of and Adult All in One series. For more advanced piano students I’ll work repertoire, theory and scales/technique as needed/desired by the student.

For voice, I tailor the lessons to the students’ age, interest and ability. I will introduce repertoire in multiple styles, work audition pieces, and help students build a solid technique through both physiological and psychological approaches.

LESSON STYLE

I try to provide a balance between structure and flexibility. The student and his or her well being is more important than the music, yet the music Fuels the lesson. My goal is that students walk out of their lessons feeling more uplifted and inspired than when they walked in. Music lessons are life lessons. The commitment to practice little by little to achieve a goal, the joy in improving step by step, the satisfaction of accomplishment, yet the challenge to continually get better...these lessons translate to all of life.

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.
