Overview:

I am a dedicated and passionate musician and educator who has been teaching in the Greater Pittsburgh Area since 2008. I earned my BFA and MM from Carnegie Mellon University in 2008 and 2010, respectively. I perform regularly all over Pittsburgh, Erie and West Virginia and my career has taken me to performances at Carnegie Hall, the Leipzig Gewandhaus and concert halls all over Europe and the United States. I perform many genres of music, from Classical to Broadway and everything in between!

EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience began in Pittsburgh in 2008, when I began my graduate studies. I emphasize consistent practice time that fit the modern student's schedule. Whether the student is in elementary school through high school, or resuming lessons after some time away, it is essential to make practice an integral part of the student's week. Not only does regular practice promote good habits, it will go a long way towards the student making more rapid and enjoyable progress! I integrate fundamental studies such as scales and etudes with other music such as school band, recital repetoire and just about anything the student would like to learn within their abilities! The goal is to reinforce that music is first and foremost about having fun, and regular lessons and practice will make it happen!

METHODS USED

For beginning students at the elementary or middle school age, I usually reccomend method books such as the Rubank Elementary Method and Essential Elements, as well as any band books from the student's school (Standard of Excellence, Yamaha Band Student, etc). As the student progresses, I like to introduce solo repetoire and play duets. At all ages, I like to support what the student is interested in learning and incorporate it to keep lessons engaging and fun!

LESSON STYLE

My favorite moments in teaching are the times when something clicks, and a student has the "Eureka!" moment! I set goals for students both weekly and long term, to help keep things in perspective. Reinforcing accomplishments while introducing progressive challenges will help the student to achieve at levels that they might not have known they were capable of. It is important to me that lessons are tailored to each student's particular interests.

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
