Hi! I am a voice and piano teacher. I am originally from CA and moved to NY to complete my degree in music education at Hofstra University. After I graduated, I stayed to complete my masters degree at Teachers College, Columbia University. My primary instrument is voice, secondary piano. I sing with the Astoria Symphonic Choir and occasionally perform new music.
I began teaching private voice and piano lessons in 2008. My students have completed level 1 and 2 NYSSMA festivals. I have a piano student working on piano level 3 this year. Besides teaching private voice and piano lessons, I also teach middle school chorus for the New York City Department of Education. At my school, I also serve as vocal director for the school musical.
Piano: Alfred with added resources
Voice: I use a variety of resources depending upon the desires of the student.
I am a constructivist teacher. I like my students to drive their lessons. However, there is a structure to the lesson. There is always a warm-up, theory and/or sight-reading, and choice time, where the student works on something they have chosen, and then time to work on something I have chosen.\
Lessons always end on a positive note!
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
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
