BA, Oakland University, Voice
Graduated summa cum laude.
My experience is a mile wide AND a mile deep. I'm an expert in vocals, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, and piano. I'm a former 4.0 music theory student with a BA in classical and operatic voice. I have 15 years of live gig experience in pop, rock, soul, gospel, worship, and country music. I've been teaching the foundations of acoustic guitar, bass guitar, vocal techniques, piano, and music theory since 2010, and I can put you on the fast track to musical greatness! I love teaching, especially beginners!
I have 15 years experience in bass, 13 years experience in guitar, 13 years experience in singing, 11 years experience in piano, not to mention fluency in double bass, drum set, and hand drums. I have performing experience in almost every category you can imagine, including rock bands, opera, pop music, top choirs, indie bands, musical theatre, concert band, country music, worship bands, jazz bands & combos, and even 2 years in steel drum ensemble! I can be a band leader and frontman or an instrumentalist in the rhythm section, and I will teach you to be the same!
I provide a great balance between excellent foundational methods and having fun performing the music you love! We will always be learning songs that you enjoy, but you will still receive the homework that puts your mind and fingers (or lungs) to the test. I never want practicing to get in the way of the excitement of playing. I am a real-world-experienced, live gigging musician with a foundation in classical technique and theory, and I will teach you to be the same! I love teaching, especially beginners!
With bass, we focus on excellent technique and the ability to write your own riffs and improvise on the fly. With guitar, we focus on the tools to learn any song by any artist, chord shapes, music theory, and finger picking technique. With voice, we focus on the classical methods essential for singing any style: breathing, stamina, warm ups, vowels & consonants, and tension-less singing, upon which we will build your preferred singing style! With piano, we will focus on building a strong foundation, through quality technique and reading music as well as learning to read lead sheets and play live gigs with contemporary bands. I guarantee you will be challenged and I guarantee you will have fun!
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
